Session: Why Are Audits So Painful?
Audits are often stressful, time consuming, and overwhelming. As our environments grow, and the advent of cloud and container technology further increases our ability to scale systems faster and faster, this pain is more keenly felt than ever before. In order to meet the challenge of staying compliant in a rapidly evolving landscape, it's imperative to automate not only our configuration and application release practices, but our validation of security and compliance as well. By automating these processes, we can shift compliance left and apply the same rigor to our development environments that we do to production, automatically and continuously.
