practices poses challenges, often because security activities are not prioritized, or because the practitioners are not able to see the relevance and importance of the activities to the improvement of the security in the project. In many teams, security activities can be seen as an innovation and as such, there is a need for a champion to realize these innovations in the teams. Security champions make software security possible.

In this paper we present the results of a case study with security champions and possible steps for establishing and maintaining this role in agile teams.
