Speaker: Cameron Harper –

Not the sexiest of subjects but, without compliance, there’s a whole bunch of people out of a job, and we can’t have that. Compliance sits at the heart of all businesses, which is why this month’s Playground, you’re invited to learn how to test infrastructure for compliance. Compliance can cover regulatory concerns or even basic best practice such as using encryption.

We’ll be using some AWS infrastructure, which has been implemented using the Terraform Infrastructure as Code tool. We’ll implement some compliance rules using the OpenPolicyAgent language, and analyse the plans generated by Terraform using a tool called Regula.

This will be a hands-on use case, but the patterns covered can be applied through automation to create a left shift of your compliance checks, moving from what is deployed in the cloud to before it gets there.

Hope to see you there!
