Minimum Viable Security – Start Small, Then Iterate with David Melamed

David Melamed is one of five co-founders and the CTO at Jit, the continuous security platform for developers. He was born in France and holds a Ph.D. in bioinformatics. 

Professionally, he has been working for the past 20 years as a full-stack engineer, as a CTO, and as a technical evangelist mostly in cloud and, in particular, in cloud security. He is very curious and likes knowledge-sharing and empowering other people. 

In this episode, David talks with host, Kirk Haines, about frictions between developers and security engineers because security is mostly an afterthought, the concept of minimum viable security (MVS), and really common things that people forget to think about when they are building their applications but that are very easy things to fix.
