Over the past three years, Threat Stack has been working on building a scalable distributed system to manage a continually growing corpus of customers’ critical data. Like many growing companies, Threat Stack has limited time, money, and resources, but that doesn’t offer an excuse to skimp on things such as high availability and security.
Pete Cheslock shares the operational and security practices that helped Threat Stack scale while staying stable and secure, covering technology and tools and the various scale points that forced hard decisions. Along the way, Pete also explores approaching security not as a dedicated team but as culture that everyone owns.
Pete Cheslock is the head of Threat Stack’s operations and support teams, where he focuses on delivering the highest level of service, reliability, and customer satisfaction to Threat Stack’s growing user base. An industry veteran with over 15 years’ experience in operations, Pete understands the challenges and issues faced by security, development, and operations professionals every day. Previously, Pete held senior positions at Dyn and Sonian, where he built, managed, and developed automation and release engineering teams and projects.
