A significant aspect of cloud security operations involves adhering to various laws, regulations, and standards. However, there are instances where conflicts arise between security and compliance requirements. Compliance-oriented organizations may prioritize "checking a box." In this panel discussion, we will explore the positive and negative impacts of compliance on security management. We will present real-life dilemmas and propose solutions that meet regulatory needs while addressing the risk-driven nature of security. Additionally, a compliance-driven approach can allocate more resources and prioritize security projects that may otherwise struggle to fit into the company's plan. During this panel, we will delve into the diverse effects of compliance on security management, providing practical dilemmas and suggesting resolutions.
