For Web-first companies, the old infosec models of simply locking everything down have fallen by the wayside in favor of new approaches that allow businesses to move quickly and improve their security practices simultaneously. Where standard security measures and compliance and audit practices used to impede progress, from product design through development and deployment, they are now folded into agile processes, DevOps approaches and tooling, and continuous delivery pipelines. This might all seem like fantasy and vaporware for financial organizations, but it is happening there, too, albeit at a slower pace. This panel brings together security start-ups and veterans to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing financial organizations in this new landscape. Elizabeth Lawler is joined by panelists Courtney W. Nash, Director, Strategic Content at O’Reilly; Jamesha Fisher, DevOps Security Pirate at CloudPassage, Inc. and Zane Lackey, Founder and CSO at Signal Sciences.

Elizabeth Lawler is CEO and co-founder of Conjur, Inc. She has over 20 years of experience working in highly regulated and sensitive data environments. Elizabeth speaks often on how speed, scale, security and compliance can be achieved through organizational, methodological and technological change. Prior to founding Conjur, Elizabeth was chief data officer of Generation Health and held a leadership position in research at the Department of Veterans Affairs. She is a programmer herself and is constantly working to make development and IT systems easier to manage for people working in regulated industries. She holds a doctorate degree and a master’s degree in biostatistics and epidemiology from Boston University.
