Scaling Security Controls with SLIM – Stakeholder Life Cycle Model

DevSecOps often implements shift left by automating security checks into the delivery pipeline. As security threats are not constrained to CI/CD we introduce SLIM. SLIM advocates for zero touch continuous security, enabling stakeholders to manage security for the entire lifecycle of their assets.

This session is based on a research paper currently under review titled “SLIM – Efficiently Scaling Security Controls using a Stakeholder Life Cycle Model”. SLIM discusses a new approach to systematically identify barriers to automation and scaling of security controls, increase coverage and with that reduce MTTD (Mean Time to Detect) and MTTR (Mean Time to Report). SLIM advocates for automated lifecycle management of assets (artifacts, configurations, …) where stakeholders can onboard and offboard their assets to a continuous zero touch security process without having to learn or deal with individual security tools on a day2day basis.
