The cloud is where applications run today, but the cloud itself is software, managed and run with code such as IaC, Kubernetes and Helm configs and Dockerfiles. Securing your cloud can, and should, follow much the same model as the security of the apps you’re running in it. If you want to know if your cloud resources are misconfigured, you can test them in the IDE or in your deployment pipelines. If you detect drift or unmanaged resources, you can update your code and redeploy instead of manually making fixes in the cloud console. 

Post-deployment, you can continue to follow secure coding practices, using important signals from operations to help engineers improve their designs and fix issues.

In this webinar, Techstrong Research analysts will share new research on securing cloud environments, containers and the need for greater visibility and collaboration between engineers, operations and security teams. In addition, a subject matter expert from Snyk will discuss challenges and successes observed from teams applying developer-first security principles to their cloud native infrastructures. Register now to learn:

  • How businesses approach cloud infrastructure vulnerability and misconfiguration management
  • How organizations configure containers with security in mind
  • The imperative for teams to collaborate to create a secure infrastructure environment

 

Jim Armstrong
Senior Director of Product Marketing, Snyk
Jim Armstong started his career doing traditional IT security at McAfee, in the days when servers were physical and you still had to screw in network plugs to the back of your computer. As virtual machines took over the world, Jim joined VMware and helped make servers, networks and storage software-defined. Then this cool little tool called Docker started popping up everywhere and he realized containers were going to change the world again, and was lucky enough to join Docker and be part of that revolution. These days, Jim is taking what he has learned at all of his prior stops and helping companies securely build applications using open source, containers and IaC at Snyk.
