✨Talk (1): Gaining Observability to Monitor Serverless Applications - by Erez Berkner (@erezberkner) ✨
Serverless applications are beneficial for scalability and improved development velocity, but they’re difficult to monitor.
Their constant change blocks conventional APM tools from the necessary visibility to identify and fix problems.
In this brave new world, observability is critical to properly run your production environment.
In this talk we will discuss:
- Why serverless applications are so difficult to monitor and manage
- Current methods for making serverless applications observable
- Best practices for monitoring serverless
Erez is the CEO & co-founder of Lumigo, a startup focusing on simplifying serverless applications troubleshooting, where the entire backend is… 100% serverless.
Prior to founding Lumigo, Erez was the R&D director of cloud products at Check Point, heading the company’s cloud strategy & execution.

✨Talk (2): Serverless and the role of DevSecOps - by TJ Gonen (@tsiong) ✨
There are ample benefits such as lower compute costs and simplified operations, by moving to serverless not to mention the increase in application velocity.
Sadly, however, the traditional AppSec approach is incompatible with this switch as it takes time and can slow things down, negating the serverless benefit of rapid feature deployment.
This leaves teams in a quandary. Developers can’t possibly keep up with the hyper-accelerated velocity they themselves created if they need to wait on security to open ports, IAM roles, or security groups for them.
While security pros don’t want to get in the way of the developers, they still need the ability to control policy and visibility.
In this talk you will:
1) learn why serverless needs a close partnership between Dev & AppSec
2) understand how to redesign security controls, so devs have control while being prevented from creating risk
3) Discover tools & processes to support collaboration
