How to Manage Security Debt as a Startup

What do you know about security debt? Security debt is a lot like technical debt, but my experience suggests that far fewer leaders at startups spend as much time thinking about their security debt.

And Christian Melendez is here to give you some top security practices on Sqreen’s blog.

In a FaaS system, you just add more executions. That’s all quite abstract, isn’t it? Don’t worry, Peter Morlion is here to help you out on Scalyr’s blog.
