Compliance as Code
The code in this repository supports the examples outlined in the Citihub Whitepaper "Continuous Compliance as Code in the Cloud", available at https://www.citihub.com/insights/whitepapers/continuous-compliance-as-code-in-the-cloud-citihub-consulting/.
What is this?
In this repository, we showcase some examples of an approach to compliance that we have found to be successful, namely we:
- Define an abstracted set of common control objectives that can be traced back to an origin (a regulation or industry benchmark)
- Express control requirements, implementing these objectives as Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) feature specs using the Gherkin DSL
- Using Terraform, deploy a clean-room infrastructure in which to test the controls
- Test the implementation of BDD features using Cucumber, specifically the Godog framework
