WANdisco and Black Diamond Software to present on DevOps compliance for financial institutions

Practical Examples for Achieving and Maintaining DevOps Compliance

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, will present a webinar entitled, “Practical Examples for Achieving and Maintaining DevOps Compliance for Financial Institutions.” The webinar will be held Thursday, March 6 at 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern.

Banking and financial institutions today are global and they rely heavily on internally developed software for new products and services to increase revenue. This software is their core intellectual property. In addition, they are faced with an ever-changing regulatory environment that imposes tremendous challenges and has significant reach into their IT organizations.

This webinar will highlight how these organizations can address regulatory compliance while creating new income streams, managing risks and lowering costs. It will cover:

  • Specific compliance challenges, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA) and more
  • How to automate compliance for open source software
  • Building security into the software development lifecycle
  • Mitigating vulnerabilities during development
  • And more, including real world examples from the field.
