How DevOps and Agile Fit with Compliance Obligations

Add to calendar

DevOps and agile are designed to help you be adaptable and move quickly. But meeting your compliance obligations tends to slow you down and make processes rigid. However, by using key components of agile and DevOps and approaching compliance obligations from a different angle, you can meet your obligations while being adaptable. Guy Herbert will show examples of how his company structures their CI/CD processes to include compliance and how they have changed their compliance approach to be able to better meet the needs of the DevOps teams. Guy will also discuss the cultural implications of DevOps and agile on the compliance process and how this can increase or decrease your ability to maintain your obligations. You will learn specific actions you can take to improve your compliance flow and interactions, with examples to bring back to your risk and compliance teams to help them understand why this approach works.
