The presentation discusses the importance of implementing security measures in cloud computing, particularly in serverless technologies, to reduce costs and ensure data privacy.
- Leverage temporary credentials and short-lived policies to mitigate risks
- Monitor AWS service outages and failures to prevent data loss
- Implement multi-region and multi-cloud designs to ensure application availability
- Use local storage and session storage to store data in case of API call failures
- Perform cost engineering to optimize application costs and reduce total cost to collect for toll operators
- Implement proper cloud security principles to ensure data privacy and security
- Resources for learning about serverless and serverless security include blogs, books, and cloud provider documentation
The speaker shares an experience where an AWS outage caused data loss in a client's application, resulting in inaccurate billing for customers. This highlights the importance of monitoring service outages and failures and implementing multi-region designs to ensure application availability. Additionally, the speaker emphasizes the need for cost engineering to optimize application costs and reduce the total cost to collect for toll operators.
