Adopting cloud native technologies like Kubernetes presents new compliance challenges. Because containers can be stopped, destroyed, rebuilt and replaced with minimum setup and configuration, it can be difficult to identify if you are compliant in the first place—or to know when a container no longer complies.
Kubernetes comes with a wide range of challenges, but for those in regulated industries or where companies want to differentiate, effective compliance is critical.
This paper discusses SOC 2 compliance and Kubernetes. It provides:
Tips that Fairwinds learned from achieving SOC 2 compliance, including how Kubernetes governance software can help
Information on how codified policies drive proper Kubernetes governance to enable transparency and accountability while minimizing risk
Details on how to centralize and enforce policies across Kubernetes clusters—and apply them to a dynamic, ever-changing environment
Advice on automating compliance throughout the application life cycle
This paper is ideal for any leader working with Kubernetes and responsible for DevSecOps, security or compliance.
