Episode 65 with Frank Cipollone

Frank Cipollone

In this episode of the We Hack Purple podcast host Tanya Janca met with Frank Cipollone from Phoenix Security in the UK! We talked about this latest white paper ‘SLAs are Dead, Long Live SLAs!’, how AppSec folks aren’t necessarily ‘great’ at maintaining their own SLAs, and how to empower a team to do their own governance and be responsible for their own risk. We talked about how to figure out the security maturity model you are looking for, and what kind of language we can use to help a client decide it for themselves. We also talked about how to get several industry experts to work on the same document together: spoiler alert, it’s hard! Listen to hear more!
