S6E5 - Jeevan Singh - Scaling Application Security

Thanks for reading Resilient Cyber! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.

- Let's start off by discussing everyone's favorite topic, vulnerability management. When it comes to AppSec, obviously there's been a big push to "shift security left" which comes with CI/CD pipelines, SAST, DAST, Secrets Scanning, IaC scanning etc. How have you handled scaling AppSec effectively without burdening Dev teams with massive vulnerability lists and being a blocker for production and delivery? 

- There's a lot of tools to choose from, across a lot of various categories, from source, build and runtime. How have you navigated selecting the right tools for the job? What about actually integrating, tuning and optimizing them when the team is often already stretched thing?

- On the tooling front, what has been your experience between vendor tools, vs. OSS options? What are some of the pros and cons you have seen from each?

- Behind all the technology is people. How have you approached building your AppSec teams?

- There's some nuances between existing team members and building the team. When you begin a new role, how have you approached building rapport among the team, getting trust, understanding historical team and org context and so on?

- You seem to continue to find yourself in various leadership roles in AppSec, event after a recent move back to an IC role. Why do you think that is, and what skills have helped you stand out as someone others want to work with, and even for in some cases, as a leader?

- What are some of your go-to resources for learning more about AppSec and keeping up to date on such a fast moving and dynamic space?
