Early in my career, I saw compliance as a tax on moving quickly that a small, growing engineering team couldn’t afford. I’m still not a hardcore compliance guy, but I have come to see the value of building compliance into a product early.
Engineering teams need to work differently to meet requirements around compliance. If you put the right things in place early on, the technical debt imposed by compliance is not very significant, whereas if you have to play catch up later, you’ll have a lot of work to do at the expense of other things you could accomplish.
