The Secure Developer

A podcast about security for developers, covering tools and best practices.


episode 99: Ep. #99 The Role of Flexibility in Success with Geoff Belknap

An initial passion for networking and telecommunications led today’s guest on a journey into the world of security. After gaining experience building security from the ground up in a few companies, he is now working as the chief information security officer (CISO) at LinkedIn. Geoff Belknap, in his second appearance on The Secure Developer, dives into the elements which he believes are key to a successful security organization, and a successful company as a whole (hint: flexibility and adaptability are non-negotiable!). We discuss the process of identifying security problems, who owns the risks, and why security is such a difficult thing to measure. Geoff also shares his perspective on changes that he expects to see happening in the CISO realm in the future, and offers some advice for any CISO’s trying to decide which company to work for.
