Many know very little about me, my past what I used to do, most just know me for my time in security. There was a time though that I spent as Project / Program Manager for a couple different organizations. I even dabbled in a WordPress centric design / development shop called CubicTwo in early 2010.
The scale of the projects and programs I was involved in ranged from $50,000 to over $6,000,000 (multiple at any given time) and varied in complexity (these weren’t simple websites, they were enterprise level systems). While different in size and scale, they did hold similarities to what most website projects today look like, just at a very different level. I fortunately had the luxury that my stakeholders didn’t require any education on the importance of security, being they were municipalities or government entities, the security discussion was a lot easier.
This however is not the case for everyday website projects, and worth taking some time to discuss.
