September 10, 2019 Meeting

Meeting Topic: Managing IT Risk in a DEVOPS Environment
Speaker: Jeannine Ritter – RAS Senior Manager

If you are planning to or have moved to DEVOPS from a more traditional IT approach, you have likely encountered confusion or resistance from your audit teams (internal and external) and possibly other areas in the business. To many people who don’t know what it is, they see it as the Wild West gone amok in IT – developers with full access to production, operations people with full access to code and to all systems (we won’t let them know IT ops has always had full access), changes made seemingly on the fly, cats and dogs living together – utter chaos!

How do you get the company on board with the move to DEVOPS? What about your auditors who are losing their minds over the idea? I have moved traditionally organized teams to DEVOPS in two different companies, helped internal and external audit get comfortable with the controls that are in place and actually stronger in a DEVOPS environment for numerous clients, and got countless business executives to enthusiastically support the change to DEVOPS. This will be some of those insights
