GenOrganizations and development teams are moving beyond waterfall models to those embracing a continuous delivery/DevOps-style set of processes. The deployment of doing tens, hundreds, or even thousands of deploys per day as 'normal' does not align to the SDLC, separation of duties, and common controls expected by auditors.
In this presentation, we will describe what auditors look for in a compliance audit, how to develop alternate control procedures that fulfill those reporting requirements, how to avoid “red flags” that indicate inadequate controls, and real world case studies and reporting artifacts.
Gene Kim has been studying high performing IT organizations since 1999 and helped develop the SOX scoping guidelines with the Institute of Internal Auditors in 2005. James DeLuccia IV is the leader for the Ernst & Young Americas Certification Services, James oversees all of the audits against common industry standards, and champions several global program implementation roll-outs. Developing and 'translating' the control environment behaviors of clients, such as Google, Amazon, Workday, and others is difficult. This discussion will bridge the needs of auditors with the community of developers by sharing examples, discussing the assurance expectations, and how to communicate to pass an audit.
