Serverless technologies provide DevOps teams the scalability and agility needed to keep up with even the fastest deployment timelines while reducing costs and providing built-in fault tolerance. However, deploying microservices in a serverless manner produces some unique security concerns that need to be accounted for. This talk will discuss the security strengths and weaknesses of going serverless, best practices for protecting your microservices, and how serverless technologies can be leveraged to improve your security posture.

This is the fourth in a five-part webcast series on Secure DevOps. Topics covered in these webcasts are directly related to the new SANS DEV540: Secure DevOps and Cloud Application Security course. The next webcast will cover the following topic: Encryption in the Cloud with KMS
