Re-cap: Compliance as Code Roundtable

In case you missed it, here is a recap of our Roundtable – Compliance as Code Webinar.

Organizations are struggling with balancing the need for speed of innovation delivery and the need for a secure environment to do so. Despite velocity gains obtained by other teams in their adoption of DevOps, Information Security teams are still behind. In fact, most companies take 2 months or more to complete a security audit. The continuous demand to increase speed potentially amplifies the issues with the current manual, error prone ways of securing environments.

It’s only through a compliance-as-code approach that organizations can remove manual time-consuming steps while minimizing the potential for human error and enhance consistency, traceability, auditability and scalability. With this automation and scalability, organizations can reduce variability between audits providing valuable, consistent reports and eliminates delays while maintaining continuous compliance.

The answer to overcoming most of these challenges is continuous compliance. Instead of performing compliance scans during security reviews or right before deploying to production, Chef Compliance enables you to test continuously as part of s “Shift left” effort into the Software Development Lifecycle or as you Shift Right into Production.

Learn how this Compliance as Code approach can be used to reach a state of continuous compliance from Chris Medina, Director Public Sector Practice, at Progress Software and AJ Yawn, Co-Founder and CEO at ByteChek.
