Paper Summary.

Agile practitioners constantly seek out ways to engage customers early on and to react to feedback quickly. The same mindset can and has to be applied to cyber security professionals, who need to navigate an ever-changing threat landscape, while also dealing with security incidents.

This talk uses real world examples to show ways to evaluate ongoing and upcoming threats, and demonstrates how this “threat intelligence” can be turned into action, while minimizing the impact on ongoing engineering work. Furthermore, it shows how to use success metrics to measure success of an agile security program.
