I moderated the discussion with Rishi Tripathi (@ris12hi), svp, CISO, NBA and Avi Shua, CEO & co-founder, Orca Security and former chief technologist at Check Point. 

Winner of the best bad idea

We had 13 bad ideas with the prize going to Eric Gold, CISO & DevSecOps advisor for Orca Security with his recommendation, “Trust that your engineers will follow procedures to install security agents properly on each workload.”

Honorable mention to Dutch Schwartz, strategic lead, AWS Global Security Services Team, with his suggestion, “Ensure only one person has root access then pile a bunch of stress on that one person.”
