Configurations are collections of security settings that organization administrators and security managers can define to help roll out GitHub security products at scale.

Starting today, you can enforce configurations. This new feature allows you to prevent users at the repository level from changing the security features that have been enabled and disabled in the configuration attached to their repository.

You can mark a configuration as enforced or unenforced at the bottom of the configurations edit page under the policy section:
Configuration Enforcement

Security configurations are currently available in public beta on and will be available in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.15. You can learn more about security configurations or send us your feedback.

We are excited to announce that compliance reports are now available for GitHub Copilot Business and Copilot Enterprise. Specifically, GitHub has published a SOC 2 Type I report for Copilot Business (including code completion in the IDE, and chat in the IDE, CLI, and Mobile). This Type 1 report demonstrates that Copilot Business has the controls in place necessary to protect the security of the service. We will include Copilot Business and Copilot Enterprise in our next SOC 2 Type 2 report coming in late 2024, covering April 1 to September 30, 2024.

Additionally, Copilot Business and Copilot Enterprise are now included in the scope of GitHub’s Information Security Management System, as reflected in our ISO 27001 certificate updated on May 9, 2024. This certification demonstrates that Copilot Business and Copilot Enterprise are developed and operated using the same security processes and standards as the rest of GitHub’s products.

Together, these reports reflect GitHub’s commitment to demonstrate our high bar for security and compliance to our customers. To learn more, please review our documentation on how to access compliance reports and certifications for your enterprise or for your organization.
