Compliance in Cloud at Scale
Every organization wants to improve the digital customer experience and speed up their release cycles to be ahead of the game. This means their environments and application footprints are continuously changing. The continuous change also means that there is a risk of misconfiguration, which can lead to malfunctions or security issues. Traditionally, compliance is mostly a manual activity whereby effort is made in discovering/creating artifacts indicating policies against some defined baselines that have been executed against ‘the software system’ and this often includes signed approvals from bodies like Change Advisory Boards. If the scope is at the enterprise level, people might spend late nights and weekends just to prepare themselves for the audit or they might run through mock Q&As. In the end, a snapshot based report is provided upon which teams have to plan the remediations
In cloud, the compliance can be continuous and automated in terms of remediation in order to address the ever changing application and infrastructure landscape.
In this session, we will discuss how ‘Infrastructure-as-code’ technologies along with dynamic configuration services can enable organizations of any size and scale to implement the concept of continuous compliance and remediation, eliminating the manual processes and letting the technology teams to focus on what matter most.
