Introduction to Bridgecrew
As cloud technology begins to grow, maintaining security of vulnerable data can become a pressing issue for many companies. The CTO of Bridgecrew, Barak Schoster, explains the vision behind the company as it aims to monitor infrastructure and security errors from being deployed into production. Bridgecrew focuses on ‘bridging the gap between code and security’. Often, teams may neglect best practices of security and this can result in time-consuming and expensive errors for the future. Barak discusses common sources of misconfiguration, including copying solutions from websites that lack knowledge of best practices. In fact, almost 50% of any open source repository is misconfigured by default, so remaining mindful of the information used is critical. This is an issue that can be dangerous if not addressed earlier as it can put valuable company data at risk.
