The Paradox at the Heart of Cloud Native Security

In a world where deploying new features to production multiple times a day, is ever more reality than myth, traditional enterprise security and compliance teams are scrambling to cope with the pace of change, the historial walls of the often cited “Church of No” are crumbling around them.

Security and compliance can often be the laggards of IT when it comes to the Cloud. As engineering moves to agile and lean methods of delivery, one by one the gatekeeping functions of security, change advisory boards, and procurement become the bottleneck on the journey to business agility.

This is a story of how the need for speed that is creating such friction between engineering and security can prove to be it’s salvation, how the cultural transformation underlying DevSecOps can be truly achieved, and how those teams that are constantly pushing the boundaries are actually security’s greatest allies.
