The security department as a part of GitLab should follow and live up to the GitLab values and mission. The transparency value can be especially difficult for a security department to embrace and embody, as due to the confidentiality of their work, security people tend to be secretive and intransparent by default.
The intent of the security culture committee is to maintain a welcoming and transparent environment within the security department.
The committee goals are to:
The committee should draft the ways to reach these goals for an open, approachable and transparent culture within the security department. The department’s leadership should reinforce those ways by communicating and leading by example. The committee will provide an interface for all team members to express any concerns regarding the culture within the security department.
