IT Complaice is necessary for contemporary Agile applications to be constrained by the requirements of compliance
Bad things happen to businesses. Because of this, organisations are required to be resilient and to be good custodians. When I use the word ‘required’, I mean that businesses have, in many aspects, no legal alternative: Enterprises simply aren’t allowed to be reckless, otherwise the public would suffer, and this is why there are numerous regulations to protect the public. Official organisations must comply with the relevant statutory regulations about resilience, however lucky they might feel. If they don’t, then they face prosecution. They also will probably want to adopt a company policy of complying with self-regulatory industry codes, the recommendations of trade associations and the doctrines of the organisation. They will certainly need to comply with contractual obligations
Compliance with the statutory regulations doesn’t guarantee that your organisation will, in reality, be secure, resilient and responsible. IT in general, and IT Security, in particular, is such a fast-moving science that the regulatory process can’t keep up. It is merely a ‘backstop’, to make sure that the minimum is done, that you meet your legal obligations and that the procedures are in place. For IT people, Compliance is just part of the business requirements: if meeting business requirements is important to you in your professional role, then compliance is important.

The office-holders within our organisation, directors, trustees, board-members or whatever, are responsible for compliance, and have a legal obligation to ensure that it happens. This means that we can be held personally liable if our organisation fails to meet the requirements of statutory regulations. As well as obvious matters such as the accuracy of company financial reports, and the internal control processes used in the generation of these reports, we can also face severe penalties for lapses in Business Continuity, Information Security and Custodianship.
The practical implementation of these obligations is usually, for larger organisations, delegated to an activity within the organisation that ensures that rules and policies are adhered to, and that this adherence can be proven. This is usually done by an auditing team appointed by the organization. If a company is of sufficient size, it will appoint a compliance specialist who has the task of making sure that all the appropriate people been informed of the policies, and that they have, where possible, been implemented and checked.
Even intricate security regimes can be rendered entirely useless by members of the organisation. A high proportion of ‘leaks’ of data come from staff. This can be carelessness or deliberate.Deliberate leaking of data is best prevented by careful access-control: major incidents in the past were exacerbated by junior members of staff having wildly inappropriate access to highly-confidential materials. Not only did they have access but there were no controls in place to detect high levels of access, which would have alerted management to a problem.
