Security Culture: Why You Need One and How to Create It

| Talk |
Masha Sedova, Co-Founder, Elevate Security

Strong cultures permeate people’s mentality and the way that they behave, their receptiveness to new ideas and thoughts, and their motivation to do security tasks. Organizations with a positive security culture have immense capability to build resilient products and reduce security debt.

Every organization has a security culture, either good or bad, even if a security team or company has never invested in it. It is the underlying driver of why people choose to do what they do around security. This is exactly why security teams and their organizations need to take ownership and proactively shape the culture into a direction that supports the security well-being of the organization.

This SnykCon talk by Masha Sedova will go into understanding how to measure your organization’s current security culture and how to define where you want to go. From there we will look into techniques of how to begin to shape your organization’s security culture to become more resilient and enable people-powered security.
