Security at Scale in an Agile organization

Koen Hendrix is Senior Security Engineering Manager at Zendesk, where he built the EMEA Product Security team. Prior to that, he was the delivery Lead on the Information Security organization and its Application Security- and Security Operations teams at Riot Games.

Koen will share his experiences at both Zendesk and previous organizations, which all operate to some extent in an agile environment. As a result, change moves very quickly from idea to implementation. As a Security team you will need to change your approach in how you support or steer those changes. We will review what a Security mindset in these organizations looks like, and what kind of programs are effective and ineffective in these situations.


Security Leaders looking to learn more about building effective security programs in fast-moving and/or agile organizations. Engineering teams, (agile) development teams, CTO’s, CIO’s eager to learn more about security best practices while delivering on agility required by business and IT.
