Monday, October 29, 2018 - 2:30 pm3:00 pm

Emily Cole, Agari Data, Inc.


Operations teams and Security teams don't always get along, and Security teams have a reputation for being grumpy and saying "no" a lot. However, there are a few simple things you can do (or may already be doing) that will make your job easier, and make your Security team less grumpy. In this session, you will get examples of security best practices as well as tips from someone who has worked in both Ops and Security.
