Paint by Numbers: Resilience in Security
What are the practices and metrics that security teams should consider when attempting to adopt the philosophy of resilience into their strategies? How can security teams start tracking the maintainability of their security programs to ensure enduring viability?
I’ll explore how areas outside of security – such as DevOps, financial systems, and natural systems – test for and measure resilience to begin thinking about how security can do so as well. I’ll then discuss what technologies and methodologies security teams can adopt to improve their organization’s resilience. My goal will be to paint a picture of how a mature, resilience-led security program might look.
