The Future of Audit and Compliance: Controls Automation

Presented by

Prasant Vadlamudi, Director of Tech GRC at Adobe

About this talk

Over the past several years, we have developed and implemented Common Controls Framework (CCF) across Adobe, enabling our cloud products, services, platforms and operations to achieve compliance with various security certifications, standards, and regulations such as SOC2, ISO, PCI, HIPAA, FedRAMP and others. CCF is the foundational framework and backbone of our companywide security compliance strategy. It also provides the flexibility to quickly adapt to and tackle new compliance and certification requirements as needed for our business and solutions. We have also open-sourced CCF for other peer industries to leverage it for their compliance goals. As the next level of organic maturity for the CCF strategy @ Adobe, we are now developing and implementing a controls automation framework which will help enable near real time monitoring of the controls operating effectiveness. The CCF controls automation framework is intended to change the controls testing strategy from a point in time/reactive mode to near-real time monitoring, tracking and alerting. This mode of controls assessment via automation not only increases the frequency of testing, but also enable quicker remediation to reduce the risk of controls failure. This framework will also enable with scaling the CCF controls framework by making it easier for new services and product teams to onboard the controls as well as help eliminate the compliance fatigue imposed on the operations and engineering teams, and still reducing risk. During this webcast we will share the automation platform that is being built by Adobe and how it aligns with CCF and Adobe’s approach towards faster adoption of controls.
