Managing applications and implementing DevOps in a regulated industry can be incredibly taxing. Our industry experts have seen first-hand how the same regulatory requirements can be interpreted in different ways by different companies, even those within the same industry and similar risk profiles that the controls are intended to handle. Within many companies (of a certain size) there is often an internal audit and compliance group which is intended to serve as a last line of defense but ends up commanding inexplicable requirements on delivery teams. Often the delivery teams themselves are not called upon to create the controls.  It wasn’t supposed to be this way, and there can be a better way.

The good news is that a DevOps compatible regulatory pattern has been created and documented and has withstood internal, external and regulatory audit at many companies. In this Webinar, you’ll learn about this framework and the tooling that can be used to support the controls and provide necessary artifacts for audit defense. This pattern will make development teams productive and will make auditors part of the solution of delivering high - quality software.

The better news is that the practices and metrics used to track this DevOps regulatory framework might just make your team better and make your organization a more desirable place to work. This creates a win-win out of a necessary evil that’s always made working in enterprise IT distressing.
