Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Cybersecurity
Software Delivery Craft Matters
Level: General

Why do teams struggle to build resilient systems, despite wanting and trying to? What does it take to build and deliver systems that are resilient to failure in practice?

In this keynote, we will dispel the myths spun by cybersecurity (and software) orthodoxy and why traditional security principles and recommendations are ineffective for achieving real outcomes.

In their place, we will explore principles, practices, and patterns that are actually effective at sustaining systems resilience, from the overlooked to the counterintuitive.

Some of these opportunities draw on the emergent resilience we behold in nature; others emulate how human societies have adapted to adversity in other problem areas since antiquity; and more still extend existing engineering practices for velocity, productivity, and reliability.

By the end of this keynote, you will bask in this new philosophy of software security with newfound means for realizing it in practice.
