Security Omnipresence:  Infiltrating Every Level of a Mature Agile Development Lifecycle
by Márion Z. Nepomuceno and Kris French
It's easy for a security professional to feel like he's alone, 
especially when there are already mature processes in place
designed to function without him. And if he does finally break
into the development lifecycle, he certainly can't be everywhere
at once. Or can he? We'll show you how we infiltrated the
development lifecycle, spread the message of security, and
recruited shadowy agents of change to achieve security omnipresence.


Marion Nepomuceno is a security engineer at Hyland Software
in charge of developing training materials, and working closely
with the nearly 200-person development staff on improving their 
secure coding skills and the security of the product. Marion has 
given several presentations and classes to audiences of varying sizes 
on the topic of security concepts and the SDL. He headed up the project 
to re-fit Microsoft's SDL processes to work within Hyland which houses 
several different waterfall-based and agile processes. This project has enjoyed 
significant success that has drawn the attention of the local security community. 

Kris French is a security tester at Hyland Software, and single-handedly created 
the security program for the QA department. Kris is in charge of creating 
training materials, creating and leading classes for his security-focused 
internal education track, managing the QA security champions group, and 
collaborating with development to aid in the creation of an overall 
security direction for the company. Kris is also an active member in his 
local security community and frequent contributor to the proceedings of 
the OWASP Cleveland chapter. Together, Marion and Kris have orchestrated 
the company-wide adoption of security practices and continue to do so. 

They are currently working on refining these methods so that they can 
be more easily implemented elsewhere. Because of these efforts, 
Hyland is now a noted member of the local security community, becoming 
host and sponsor of the OWASP Cleveland meetings.

Second Talk
