Cloud Compliance for Everyone

We've all read the articles: A misconfigured S3 bucket or open instance with internet access leads to service downtime, and in many cases is an entry point for more insidious security breaches. With the growing complexity of cloud infrastructure, it's becoming increasingly important to make sure that we ensure that developers can remain productive while also making sure that a misconfigured firewall rule doesn't put your organization at risk. Enter governance-as-code, the concept that allows you to declaratively state the security posture of your cloud infrastructure, and then have that live along side all your other code. In this talk I will go over how to get started with Cloud Custodian:, an OSS tool that you can use to make sure your instances are well managed by giving your developers the freedom to use the cloud while providing them confidence to know that they won't accidentally deploy something bad on the internet. Oh, and also, it will save you a ton of money.
