Speakers from CSIT and GovTech will share on how OPA is being implemented, how Envoy and OPA proved invaluable in CSIT's journey in breaking up monoliths into microservices, and how the Whole-of-Government Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) makes use of OPA (Gatekeeper) to enforce a variety of requirements.
