Two of the common challenges Fitzgerald sees: Changing the culture and getting used to the agile element of development.

"[You have to] have both the resources and the talent to start to implement automated security that will actually align well with what an organization is trying to do," Fitzgerald says.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Chicago, Fitzgerald discusses:

  • Obstacles organizations face in cloud migration;
  • The DevSecOps challenge;
  • How to grow the skills needed for security teams.

Fitzgerald is CISO, new ventures, for the consultancy McKinsey & Co. He currently leads cybersecurity for a large cloud hosting and software development business unit. He previously served as the CISO for Uptake - a startup in predictive maintenance, where he created and implemented a cloud security program. He also was a consultant with PwC, Accenture and Trustwave, helping clients deal with their cybersecurity, privacy and IT risk management challenges.
