There are many stakeholders involved when creating or assembling a security toolchain. How do you satisfy the different, and sometimes conflicting, needs of these stakeholders in a responsive way? We can use some of the concepts developed in the user experience domain to create better security tooling. User personas allow us to map out different roles that must interact with security to get their work done. These personas are living and provide a fast feedback loop when paired with user interviews. Dustin Collins talks on providing direction while allowing freedom as a key tenet to integrating security into different parts of an organization.

Dustin is a polyglot engineer and Conjur’s developer advocate. As the organizer for the Boston DevOps meetup, he is most interested in how, as a community, we can iterate on the processes and tools to enable continuous delivery of quality software. Previously, he was Principal Software Engineer at Essess, Inc. He was Senior Software Engineer at Carbonite, Python Web Developer at both 5Q Communications and LUZEO GmbH, and Web Developer at University of Northern Iowa, among other positions.
