How To Nail DevOps Governance and Compliance in a Highly Regulated Industry

Wednesday, July 28, 1:00pm ET
KEYNOTE: Gerard McMahon - Fidelity Investments

Regulatory, audit and governance requirements are not the only concern of the finance industry, but there’s a lot to be learned from DevOps pioneers in that sector. Securing the software delivery pipeline, ensuring engineering and operations teams adhere to policy, and keeping everything audit ready is how any regulated organization should operate.

Join leaders from Fidelity Investments, Accelerated Strategies Group and CloudBees as we examine the challenges and lessons learned when implementing governance and security requirements in closely controlled environments.

Key takeaways will include:

  • What regulators will, and will not, accept as compliance evidence

  • What internal stakeholders want to see (and how to win them over)

  • The three most important actions to take on your own regulatory journey
