Better Bring an Umbrella—Forecasting Events in Security
Leader: Travis McPeak
7:00 pm–8:00 pm, Sandpebble Room CDE

The security industry tends to rely on instinct rather than quantitative methods to estimate risk. We can do better. Forecasting blends historical data and expert knowledge to estimate the likelihood or impact of an event, and has been used effectively by meteorologists, insurance providers, and nuclear strategists. Join Ryan McGeehan (@magoo) and Travis McPeak (@travismcpeak) as we estimate the likelihood of a 0-day exploit in a major browser. Refreshments will be served.

Round Table Session 2

Scaling Product Security
Leader: Astha Singhal
8:00 pm–9:00 pm, Sandpebble Room CDE

Historically, product/application security teams have heavily relied on a consulting model for serving their engineering customers. This enabled us to embed closely with developers and provide security guidance throughout the development lifecycle for new features and products. With changes to how we release software and the hiring challenges in our field, this model has become hard to scale. Product security teams are now investing in static & dynamic code analysis, security champions, CI/CD automation, and bug bounty programs to scale their services better. It is difficult, however, to measure the risk impact from some of this work.

During this session, we would like participants to discuss current and future initiatives at their organizations that help them reduce business risk in a scalable, measurable way. Please come to this BoF session to share your experience with strategies that have been impactful within your organization. Refreshments will be served.
