One of the most common challenges when organizations move to the cloud is getting an answer on how to do this in a secure and compliant way. This involves ensuring you set up your azure landing zones in such a way that you enable teams to deliver their solutions secure and compliant by default. The cloud requires a completely different security model than what we are used to in the on-prem world. One important concept here is ensuring we build our cloud using a zero-trust model.

If it comes to compliance, there are many things to discuss. What does it mean to be compliant? In my work as a CTO, this is often covered by smoke curtains and vague use of terminology. But what are the fundamental concepts behind compliance, and how do you achieve this in such a way you can still ensure maximum performance of your teams in delivery? This involved a high degree of automation and empowerment of your teams. I will share what we learned over the years to ensure secure and compliant delivery for our customers. Many of those customers work in highly regulated environments like government, banks, and pharma.

You will learn:

  • What does it mean to be secure and compliant?
  • What are the two concepts that will get you 99% compliant instantly?
  • How automation and tools can help you stay highly productive while being compliant.
