In this episode, we catch up with Keith Hoodlet (@securingdev) Senior Manager, Application Experience at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Keith has a strong background in application security and is the former host for 55 episodes on the Application Security Weekly podcast. I saw a tweet by Keith and wanted to dig deeper in that. The tweet was responding to Dino Dai Zovi who said "Security" as a single dimension of expertise increasingly makes no sense. Saying that you are a "security expert" is like saying you are a "computer expert." Computing is a part of everything we do and we don't isolate expertise on all of it within the "computers team.", Keith said "Agreed; in the same way that Ops became part of the Software Engineering team, we need Security to become part of the Software Engineering team.
This is why I say that Security is a Feature, because features are:
- Have time allocated to them
- Are tested and maintained"
We also walk through Keith's journey into the industry and also share advice to companies looking to mature their Application Security and DevSecOps.
