If your Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) program doesn't include stakeholders from development and engineering teams, that program has a massive untenable gap that will cost you time and money until it is fixed. Developers are your front line of defense. This will be a brief yet meaningful session about breaking down the internal politics of SDLC, AppSec, CI/CD, and DevSecOps. Our dev and security teams *can* work together without spite but only when we understand and appreciate one another's motivations and success criteria. It’s not “Them” vs. “Us”; it’s just “Us”, and this is how we get there.
