This article explores how to experiment with adding agility into audit work while auditing a client, which can lead to better outcomes for you and your auditors.

  • Evolving DevSecOps to Include Policy Management

    A thorough implementation of policy management tools is required for effective compliance and security management in a DevOps environment. Companies that accept policy management in DevSecOps as a way of development and have adopted some level of policy management best practices tend to operate more efficiently.

  • Q&A on the Book Cybersecurity Threats, Malware Trends and Strategies

    The book Cybersecurity Threats, Malware Trends and Strategies by Tim Rains provides an overview of the threat landscape over a twenty year period. It provides insights and solutions that can be used to develop an effective cybersecurity strategy and improve vulnerability management.

  • Privacy Architecture for Data-Driven Innovation

    This article lays out how you build an internal data governance architecture early in the ingestion phase, which enables you to allocate risk to data and identify such data in your systems. You can then protect the data accordingly. The second half of this article lays out various techniques to share data in a privacy-conscious manner.

  • Respect Your Organisational Monoliths

In this article, author Rohit Sethi discusses how to map NFRs to feature-driven user stories and also how to make security requirements more visible to the stakeholders.

  • Regulatory Compliant Cloud Computing: Rethinking web application architectures for the cloud

    Not all data is sensitive and hence an equal and balanced investment in securing all data categories is not justified. This article presents an architecture that leverages cloud-computing, cloud-storage and enterprise key-management Infrastructure(EKMI) to lower costs while complying to data-security regulations.

  • Introduction to Cloud Security Architecture from a Cloud Consumer's Perspective

    Security concerns are the number one barrier to cloud services adoption. How do we evaluate a vendor's solution? What is an optimal security architecture? What are consumer versus provider responsibilities? What are industry standard patterns in this regard? This article answers some of these questions based on first hand experience dealing with large scale cloud adoption.

  • Virtual Panel on Cloud Computing

    In this virtual panel, InfoQ wants to find out from leading cloud experts what are the benefits brought by cloud computing as well as the constraints in using them, what is better to use, a public or a private cloud, is the cloud interoperability needed, what is the difference between providing infrastructure or a platform, and how can a client enforce regulatory compliance.
