Weaving Application Security’s Scale

with Elie Saad


Application Security has been on a high growth journey with various brandings and ways of working. A challenge that is always encountered is the scaling problem across an organization. Companies, as expected, go through the consultants shift, turning AppSec engineers into mise-en-place subject matter experts, detaching them from engineering and other departments’ dynamics. In this talk, I’ll discuss a different version of scaling, a version where AppSec acts as the enabler for the wider business through weaving partnerships. Before getting to this, the talk will take the audience through AppSec’s growth journey.
