The DevSecOps Super Bowl: How security champions can support your team to victory against late-stage vulnerabilities

Implementing DevSecOps positively is critical for any organization that needs to deploy apps and programs quickly and securely. One proven method to achieve this is through security champions at both the executive and development levels. The AppSec-side champion works hand-in-hand with the CISO and other executives to generate support and execute security programs at the organizational level, while a hands-on, engineering-based champion works directly with their fellow developers and takes on more of a coaching role. The most innovative and successful organizations employ both.

This white paper will provide insights into these roles, the benefits they bring, and what to look for in your next set of security coaches and champions.
