Dwayne Melancon, CTO of Tripwire, has an interesting idea: turn your team into gamers, let them build their internal images and support that vision. This isn't the type of thing you'd expect to hear at a security conference. In this short conversation, I talk with Dwayne about how to implement employee game theory within your project team. About Dwayne Melancon I was a contributor to both the Visible Ops Handbook and Visible Ops Security Handbook, working with authors Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, and George Spafford. As part of this effort, I have worked as a researcher with Carnegie Mellon’s SEI, the University of Florida, and the IT Process Institute in their studies and benchmarking of IT best practices. I work with numerous corporations around the world on IT service management improvement and IT security, and have teamed with the Institute of Internal Auditors in its pursuit of Generally Accepted IT Principles. As a frequent, highly-rated speaker at national and regional itSMF, ISACA, ISSA, IIA and other industry events, I present on how to achieve world-class IT results. Using a framework of essential IT controls, I provide operations, security, and audit audiences with prescriptive steps they can take to improve IT change policies, procedures and systems.
