Security can be somewhat of a mystery at a lot of organizations. Most companies choose to be tight-lipped about the security measures they have implemented. Rightfully so, there is an underlying fear that publicizing your security efforts could make you more vulnerable to security attacks and damage your reputation with your customers. However, there is another way. Transparency can be your ally in security.

In this interview, we will be talking about how transparency practices can lead to improved security. With transparency being one of our core values at GitLab, we will talk about the processes we have implemented to maintain our security stance while operating with the highest possible public transparency and how you can apply them to your enterprise to achieve increased security and transparency.
