Are Agile technical practices and security interdependent?

In our May 2021 event celebrating 20 years of Agile technical practices, we rediscovered some forgotten facts from the early days of agile. We were reminded that security professionals have been part of the Agile community since the earliest days of XP. In this panel, we’ll explore the history of security and Agile technical practices. We’ll also look to the future to consider the possibilities of how Agile technical practices and security can and will evolve together.

Register for this Agile Tech Talks event below. We look forward to seeing you online!
