OWASP: Inspiring People to Embrace Risk Management
New Relic

This month's OWASP chapter meeting features Andrew Plato, President and CEO of Anitian.


Security leaders are under supreme pressure to build security programs that protect the business without disabling the business. However, the greatest impediment to success is not the technologies or regulations, but rather the people who must implement a security program. As a security leader, how do you communicate important risk, security, and compliance concepts to your team in a manner that inspires them to action? The answer is security vision. We live in world where people do not want more rules, they want meaning. The problem with so much of what we do in security is that it often seems annoying and unnecessary to users and executives. When people understand the mission and vision of the organization, they are naturally inclined to follow good practices. In this presentation, veteran security leader, as well as a CEO, Andrew Plato will discuss how to create, foster, and promote security vision to improve engagement with your co-workers. We will discuss communication, leadership, and motivational strategies that clarify and simplify security concepts to drive maximum employee engagement.
