Microservices, containers, and serverless are all the rage, especially for greenfield developments. But in these environments, you don’t really know which machine is running what code, so surely these trends must have security implications? Liz Rice addresses the questions you need answers to: Will your deployments be less secure or more? How do DevOps processes like CI/CD and cluster orchestration affect your security profile? And what can we all do to minimize the risk of exploits?
