Season 1 Episode 14 - Stop Forgetting About Cloud Security With Jason Kao

Episode Summary

In the serverless world, we sometimes take the word “managed” a little too seriously. We often forget that not ALL software responsibilities are taken over by cloud vendors. Oftentimes responsibilities are shared between builders and cloud vendors, like security.

In this episode, Allen and Jason talk about ways to improve your security posture starting today. They dive deep into AWS organizations, talk about how to keep your app teams and security teams friendly with each other, and discuss ways to minimize blast radius.
