Programming Your Policies

Software is eating the world, and this talk is about how it is coming to eat the world of policy. I will talk about why this is happening, what the business drivers are, and how it affects developers and compliance and security departments, and the cultural and communication changes there. We will look at the Open Policy Agent project, a mature CNCF project, to guide us around what an implementation looks like, and what the easy and hard parts of adopting policy as code are for your organization.
