Setting Up Controls at Scale in Your AWS Environment

Companies are challenged with balancing compliance and security requirements with the desire to allow engineers to make their own design choices. Many companies take an allow-list approach: restricting developer access to AWS services until risks are defined and controls implemented. In this presentation, Tom Wolstencroft, DTCC Director, Cloud Solution Engineering, spoke about how DTCC is balancing these requirements with the desire to allow engineers to make their own design choices, and why security, auditability and automation are paramount with every step of our cloud journey.
