The Security organization executes quarterly Objectives and Key Results or OKRs.
Four Mondays before the start of the fiscal quarter, in the days after the CEO shares OKRs with all of GitLab in the #okr channel, the CISO proposes OKRs for the Security department in the OKR draft review meeting agenda for a maximum of 3 objectives. Security leaders are to propose draft OKRs to the CISO prior to the meeting for inclusion.
From FY24 Q1 forward all Security OKRs are documented in the GitLab OKR project. For easy filtering, all Security Objective and KR issues have Label = Department::Security applied.
Larger initiatives that span the scope of multiple teams or projects may require a Working Group.
