Mark Simos - Using Security Reference Architectures

November 19, 2021

Today we are joined by Mark Simos, Lead Cybersecurity Architect at Microsoft, to talk about leveraging security reference architectures to operationalize security. We will talk about our current context and the democratization of security and DevOps across the enterprise. Since security touches so many parts of the organization, this is where the role of security reference architectures becomes critical in creating an onramp for cross-functional teams. They help coordinate activities and programs against measurable business outcomes. We will conclude by looking forward to the next 18-24 months and what to expect.
