How to have your cake and eat it too? Managing software development in a high compliance environment

FEBRUARY 16, 2021 @ 9AM PT | 12PM ET


Like many other companies in the DevOps sphere, the team at Rookout Labs realized early on that compliance can be a serious obstacle to the progress of their sales cycle.


Having long-standing experience with security, but none at all with compliance, they set out to become SOC 2 compliant in our software development process.

They quickly learned that there was very little public documentation on how to become SOC 2 compliant. In this session, Rookout CTO Liam Haimovitch will share how his team built the SOC 2 procedures around agile software development and DevOps patterns such as CI/CD and GitOps. Although it typically takes about a year to complete a SOC 2 compliance, Rookout managed to get certified in less than six months.

During this session, you will learn how agile processes and DevOps can address and outperform traditional methods for managing security and compliance. This talk will empower you to tailor your enterprise compliance needs to your desired software development process. In short, software-oriented organizations can have their cake and eat it too.
