When it comes to securing cloud usage, misconfigurations can arise for many reasons and stem from a number of sources. One particularly well-traveled road for the origination of security issues is through application development. Specifically, situations where changes made during development lead to undermined security, the introduction of vulnerabilities, or other non-optimal security outcomes.
Fortunately, by working together with development teams, security groups can help find and mitigate these types of issues.
This discussion will explore how and why threats get introduced during the development cycle and cover strategies for how you can mitigate those issues when they do.
