Coordinated multi-level Governance – The key to elevating DevSecOps outcomes
Rapid change, sustained volatility, and ever-changing regulations characterize the business environment in the new normal and equally impact large and small organizations. Business applications in the born-digital era witness a manifold increase in their user base as DevSecOps pipelines continue to deliver changes by the hour. Solidifying Governance using a holistic view of risk and compliance using organizational data from both internal and external sources is a critical success factor in this scenario. GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance) is on a fast-paced evolution, enhancing collaboration and transparency by mining data to combine real-time and historic insights.
Major platforms have implemented Automated DevSecOps Governance by addressing key considerations at 3 levels – Source code level, DevSecOps platform level, and Business application layer. These provide ease of traceability to reconstruct the flow of changes throughout the pipeline. By enforcing uniformity, they significantly improve productivity and ease reporting and support for internal and statutory audits. Automation simplifies Sound policy management practices, audit management, PII data protection and compliance, operational and technology risk management, and governance of all configurable items. The major benefits to organizations range from improving the risk posture of DevSecOps initiatives to eliminating the typical management concerns about handling regulatory compliance and audits.
