In a year long study we observed an agile software development team, to understand, how it establishes security practices following a security consultancy. This included in-situ observation at a security workshop and interviews with developers and management. In our long paper for CSCW 2017 we reveal that the consultancy hampered understanding, but was not sufficient to change organizational routines.
