Building a secure system is like constructing a good pizza – each individual layer adds flavor that ultimately builds to the perfect bite. At Netflix we have hand-crafted ingredients that by themselves are scrumptious, but when placed together strategically on the crust (read: cloud), constructs a pizza so large that any pizza lover (read: attacker) would be challenged to finish.

Attendees will learn the secret to the sauce that is Netflix Infrastructure Security and how even defensive appsec tooling like Signal Sciences can be used in the mix to be better equipped to start baking pizza in their own kitchen, and leave satisfied.

Attendees will learn:

  • Netflix’s approach to reduce risk of credential compromise in practice
  • How to achieve right-sized permissions and handling
  • How Netflix puts all the tooling in place to strengthen their security posture
