No, this isn’t another post about the Secure Development Lifecycle. This is a practical post on why and how to address cloud security at each step of the infrastructure development lifecycle, from infrastructure as code in your IDE to running cloud resources.
Deploying and managing cloud resources is faster and easier than ever, and we have infrastructure as code (IaC) to thank for it. With IaC, tedious manual configurations and one-off scripts are things of the past. Instead, you manage infrastructure with code in much the same way you would applications and services. This infrastructure can be anything from servers and databases to networks, Kubernetes clusters, and entire application stacks.
