The Future Is Now – Security Considerations In a Serverless World

June 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Join us June 18th from 12pm-1250pm for our workshop on Security Considerations In a Serverless World.

In 2019, researchers at Berkeley published "Cloud Programming Simplified: A Berkeley View on Serverless Computing" where they predicted that "Serverless computing will become the default computing paradigm of the Cloud Era". A separate research report predicts nearly 29% annual growth of the serverless market between 2019 and 2026. For security professionals this means if you aren't already working to secure serverless workloads you likely will be in the near future. Are you ready?

In this talk, we will begin by exploring the definition of serverless, how serverless architectures compare to traditional server architectures, and the benefits of building and operating serverless applications. Once we've established a common understanding of serverless we will explore the common challenges associated with securing serverless applications and discuss pragmatic steps that builders and defenders can take to address those challenges.


Troy Marshall has 20 years of experience in the IT industry, primarily focused on the delivery of secure, reliable enterprise software in organizations ranging from startups to large enterprises. He began his career with a very small software startup building and delivering software-as-a-service (SaaS) before that term had even been coined. As is the case with many IT professionals in the DC area, he spent a few years as a federal government contractor delivering secure web applications in support of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services health care quality improvement and pay for performance initiatives. For the last 7 years, he has been working to enable secure cloud transformation efforts through DevSecOps. Troy is currently Executive Director, Secure Development & Operations at the College Board.

Virtual Cyber Workshop

In an effort to keep our members, the Greater Washington DC region, and the world informed and connected we are holding a series of FREE Cyber workshops for who is interested!  We want to give you an outlet as we all adjust to the new norms we are faced with as a result of the escalating health concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  As such, we hope you can join us. We have a great lineup of presenters who will cover a variety of interesting topics for which one (1) CPE can be earned for each webinar attended. You will need to self-certify, however, as GWDC will not be sending you a CPE certificate.
