Serverless Security Risks And Mitigation Strategies

There are many benefits to moving to a serverless cloud computing architecture. With automated, nearly infinite scaling, very little stands between developers and deployed code. Serverless enables organizations to facilitate a shift from DevOps to NoOps.

The lack of friction is valuable, speeding time to market and making it easier to maintain and test individual functions. As an additional benefit, you pay only for what you use, resulting in lower costs.

Serverless architecture fundamentally changes how organizations approach DevOps, and as a result, it changes how organizations need to approach security. In some regards, the nature of serverless improves security since serverless applications are broken up into smaller functions. This paradigm shift requires organizations to focus not only on the application and infrastructure, but also on the individual functions themselves and the code therein.
