Cheers to 2019! We are starting the year off talking about Security!

According to a 2018 survey from The New Stack, over 75% of organizations are using or plan to use serverless in the next 18 months. But it does not come without security risks. In this talk, Sonya will discuss key components of serverless architecture and potential risks organizations need to be aware of, such as: visibility and monitoring challenges, denial-of-service attacks, dependencies on external resources, access control risks, and best practices for serverless security both as functions are built and at runtime.

Sonya Koptyev is the Director of Evangelism at Twistlock. She has been driving community efforts across various development technologies since the early days of SharePoint and .NET.
