APPSEC Cali 2018 - We Come Bearing Gifts: Enabling Product Security with Culture and Cloud

Abstract :
What would it look like if security never had to say “no”?

This talk explores that counter-intuitive premise, and shows how it is not just possible but *necessary* to discard many traditional security behaviors in order to support modern high-velocity, cloud-centric engineering teams. For the product security team at Netflix, this is the logical implication of a cultural commitment to enabling the organization.

Attendees will learn how to replace heavy-handed gating with an automation-first approach, and build powerful security capabilities on top of cloud deployment primitives. Specific examples including provable application identity, immutable and continuous deployment, and secret bootstrapping illustrate how this approach balances security impact with engineering enablement.
