AWS CISO Talk
I agree that security is everyone's responsibility (not just the CISO) andthat humans remain the weakest link but i'm not sure I agree that the threat landscape has changed much in the past decade...that's a head scratcher

AWS Code Scrubbing
AWS uses an internal automated code analysis platform in lieu of peer-to-peer code reviews, which involve security teams hunting code errors after the engineers had developed it. The code reviews were a frustrating process, he explained, as they required the engineers to learn all the errors at the same time, and then go back and correct them. AWS' tool builds "natural peer feedback processes" into the software development life cycle, Schmidt said. It provides a code review while engineers are developing, so they view mistakes as they happen and receive immediate feedback. The result is a smoother dev process.

This Agile scrum process is what organizations need (validate proper coding procedures), I wish there was an application that could check issues with improper code, syntax, logical design and layout.
