Aligning security and delivery at a strategic level is one of the most complex challenges for executives. It starts with an understanding that risk-based thinking should not be perceived as an overhead or tax, but a value added component of creating a high-quality product or service.
One solution is balanced development automation, which is about aligning automated DevOps (development and IT operations) pipelines with business risk and compliance. To attain this, alignment must be achieved between risk and business teams at two different levels:
1. Strategic level (CEO, COO, CFO, CRO, CIO, DPO)
2. Operational level (DevOps engineers, risk engineers)
