We are very fortunate to have Srinivasa Kasturi share his 25 years of experiences working with security and a variety of life cycles. His presentation is just one slide pulling together the various life cycles whose pushes and pulls tug our work day in and day out, both in positive and negative directions. His model borrows lessons learned from development, operations, project management, portfolio analysis, production support, and other life cycles that the presenter has lived through and studied, and is still studying! Here are a few takeaways for the audience at the end of the session:
• Project life cycle and security
• Portfolio life cycle and security
• Program life cycle and security
• Product life cycle and security
• Development life cycle and security
• Business Asset life cycle and security
• Compliance life cycle and security
• Business Service life cycle and security

Srinivasa Kasturi work experience spans working on security strategy, architecture, processes, development, testing, operations support, incident response, and hardware design and testing. He did security work for software vendors such as IBM, standards certification bodies such as A2LA (FedRAMP program), Civil Federal contractors such as TRW, Financial organizations such as Freddie Mac. He is currently working as Information Security Officer at the World Bank and is the owner of Banyan Logic, LLC., offering unique job-ready hands-on running-start one-day-boot-camp style security classes.

Besides earning Professional Development Units (PDUs) for participating our RMF LifeBoat ISSA Education Group meeting, we all receive the encouragement and help we need for our cyber security professional growth. The friendly interactive presentations by our members of the meetup always lead to lively respectful discussions. Members always take away information that they that can be applied on the job in the following weeks! In additional our LifeBoat group meetings provide opportunities for the all-important professional networking. If you have a vexing problem, share with like-minded security professionals. They may have already successfully developed a way forward to resolve it.
