How We Married Policy-as-Code And Compliance With Automation

Feedback form is now closed.
Let’s talk about compliance—just the word makes people either want to fall asleep or worse, run and hide. Between the development process and the cycle of endless audits, it’s no wonder that people try to avoid this topic at all costs. However, it’s clear that in order to move toward cloud migration and modernization, public sector organizations must transform their existing processes to obtain an Authority to Operate (ATO). In this talk, we’ll walk through the process of how implementing automation took our federal customer from an average ATO time of an average of 3-4 months per application to only 1-2 weeks, and more importantly, why Gitlab is the superior tool to help us do that.

Not a federal customer? That’s ok, too. Managing policy through automation is an important way you can more easily pass any regulatory audit like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and more!
