Come learn how HBO Max security team is enabling innovation with the right guardrails

The HBO Max team has been on a tear, with a growing global user base of over 67 million subscribers and continuously beating analyst expectations. While the development and product organizations are driving this success at the ground level, security is working in the background to make sure they are doing so safely. 

Are you wondering how they are doing it? Well, join us at our virtual Governance as Code Day with Cloud Custodian, which is taking place next week. At the event, Brian Lozada, CISO at HBO Max, will be doing a keynote. Brian is a Marine Corps veteran with more than 15 years of experience developing and maintaining information security programs for some of the world’s top brands. Before HBO Max, he was a CISO for Zocdoc and Condé Nast, where he oversaw security and risk management for all digital and technology operations. 

Often, we see innovation and cloud adoption are being held up by fear: fear of security risk, fear of misconfiguration, or fear of failure. In this talk, Brian will share how they reduce these fears by providing their development team with effective guardrails that enable governance at scale. 

While helping Brian prepare for his presentation, I remember him saying, "Fear does not get to dictate our tempoour customers do." It was great hearing from him about how customer-obsessed that entire HBO Max team is, from development to security. In his keynote, Brian will take you on a journey of how the team has instilled a customer-focused security culture that isn’t afraid of failure. Instead of focusing on controls, the team is focused on establishing guardrails that scale. 

Cloud Custodian, an open-source project, is a core part of their cloud governance strategy. This session will also share how Cloud Custodian helped the team to establish an event-driven architecture that enables governance as code. Cloud Custodian has helped speed their security development and automate and enforce hundreds of security rules and policies across multiple cloud accounts and regions. This means that the development teams at HBO Max can fearlessly deploy innovative services for their users.
