DevOps has helped usher in the infrastructure-as-code movement. Code can deploy and configure virtualized servers, storage, and networking, and even dedicated, template-built data processing databases clusters. The Internet of Things (IoT) is transporting us to a world where our smart speaker can start our car, open our door locks, and tell us where our spouse has driven the car. And we’re steadily advancing to a world where organizations replace their entire datacenter with cloud-based infrastructure. In some companies, the datacenter could be entirely controllable with just a few accounts, which represents an unacceptable risk.

In this highly interconnected, cloud-based world full of “things”, a burglar may learn what high value items you've bought, determine when you're away on vacation, unlock your house, walk in and pick up those belongings, then unlock and start your car to drive away with them—all by compromising the right accounts and acquiring the right privileges.

Tune in to this on-demand webinar as Jay Beale shares real stories of hacking the infrastructure-as-code-as-control-of-the-physical-world and why least privilege, and separation of duties and accounts are a must for any next-generation technology deployment. Also, gain key takeaways that will help you better protect your environment.
