JFrog Security experts, Moran Ashkenazi, VP Security Engineering, CSO @ JFrog, Nitzan Gotlib, Security Lead Engineer, collaborate with other DevOps industry leaders and discussed the execution of cyber security tasks alongside new technological advancements. Stefania Chaplin interesting spoke about how ‘25% of all breaches are caused by human error,’ adding that we must be empathetic with ourselves. Moran A. echoed this and added we must try to empower our employees. By giving people the opportunity to run systems and developments, great responsibility and accountability will follow. Moreover, in 2021 cybersecurity saw a global spike in Ransomware activity. Nitzan Gotlib spoke about how organizations are becoming more aware of these attacks, and Jaki Hsieh Wojan predicted that hackers will elevate their sophistication by targeting users on social media to uncover rich information.
During the evening, we discovered that 20% of our audience believe their organization does not have an inclusive hiring process. We explored ways to combat this, such as amending job descriptions, creating a reasonable list of ‘required’ and ‘desired’ attributes, as well as initiating an inclusive onboarding process and mentoring others.
