For today’s show we are bringing you a conversation between Julien Vehent and Guy Podjarny from DevSecCon Seattle, where Julien was a keynote speaker. His talk, titled ‘Beyond the Security Team’, explored the idea of using modern techniques, culture shifts and DevOps principles to grow security-first culture in organizations. Julien is a security engineer and manager who works on operational security for Firefox’s backend infrastructure. In our conversation, we cover some background to our guest, his current professional role, his talk and the inspiration behind it before diving into his ideas on security’s present and possible futures. Julien makes an argument for setting up ‘paved roads’ for security in order to save time and resources but rather than these being restrictive, he emphasizes the freedom that should remain built into these systems. For a fascinating chat with Julien and some insight into what is going at Mozilla currently.
