Abstract/Description

The security of a system or application is the team's responsibility...not just the security professional assigned to the project. How does an agile team address the security of our system or application as a collaborative unit?

Through the lens of Scrum team members, we will examine the roles and responsibilities of individual team members to enable producing a secure product.

Developers, testers and systems engineers all have specific obligations regarding the security of their product, but must bring those to bear in a collaborative fashion. We will take each of these roles individually and focus on how their individual skillsets coalesce together to build a secure system.
