Compliance in the cloud – Continuous Lifecycle London 2017

This talk covers how to be compliant in the cloud, be secure, gain a competitive advantage, and avoid going to jail.

While there’s an almost infinite list of assurance schemes, regulations and frameworks that we need to comply with, such as PCI, HIPAA and GDPR, the controls are all largely the same. Maintain data and system security, know your environment, only allow people to do what they need to do, and be able to prove it. These are some of the technologies and strategies you might employ to introduce and maintain compliance in AWS.
