What is decentralized IT? - Part 2

In this non-central edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Michael Santarcangelo joins me to discuss decentralized IT.

Michael (@Catalyst) has talked about decentralized IT before on a couple other podcasts. It's a concept that I am currently experiencing in my day-to-day role. I work with the development team to improve security in the software development life cycle. I sit with the dev team. I attend meetings. I am a resource for them to approach about security concerns and questions. I am having quite a bit of success. Which is why I wanted to have Santarcangelo on to have a discussion around this concept. It's something that I think more teams should be looking into as an approach for working with other departments and teams.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What are the roles and responsibilities
  • Having leadership buy in
  • Being adaptable
  • Building better relationships
