Let’s Talk Security In Practice

Hi, I’m Ed – an engineer by trade, CEO by day, and accidental security expert.

For two decades, I’ve been fortunate to have crossed paths with respected industry luminaries and practitioners. On a regular basis, I invite them to discuss practical approaches to securing the software ecosystem based on today’s realities: complex tech stacks, evolving threats, motivated attackers, mounting regulations, and unsettling skill gaps.

Come join us. You may laugh, cry, reflect, or learn – just like your relationship with security. Either way, Ed Talks will be:

Fun, Engaging


Discussion, Debate & Banter



Good, Bad & Ugly



Varied Topics & Panelists



Security Upskilling Software Teams:
Insights from Microsoft, Atlassian & Intuit

To meet demand for feature rich software, companies rely on emerging technologies and rapid release cycles. However, they often lack confidence in their teams to securely build and deploy it. Leaders need a playbook that goes beyond just training developers on secure coding and reflects how teams want to learn.

Join this Ed TALKS to hear how 3 professionals have up-leveled skills at Intuit, Microsoft, and Atlassian and gain insight from Security Innovation’s own benchmark data from our expansive user base.

This Ed TALKS is Presented by
Ed Adams, Security Innovation | Alex DeDonker, Microsoft | Marissa Fagan, Atlassian | Kim Jones, Intuit
