Pycon Israel 2021

Building a Secure Python Cloud Application from scratch
05-03, 11:00–11:25 (Asia/Jerusalem), General Track 1

When is it the right time to implement security when building an app? In this talk, you will learn how to build from scratch a secure Python application hosted in the cloud, the major attack vectors and tools you need to remediate to the main risks.

When do you think is the right moment to worry about the security of the application you develop in the cloud? The first time your customer requires it to buy your product, or should you just wait for the first security incident? I strongly believe that it is never too early to think and act towards securing your environment and your product, otherwise security becomes some unmanaged technical debt that just accumulates with every single line of code.

In this talk, you will learn how to build a secure Python application hosted in the cloud from scratch. You will discover what are the main common threats and attack vectors you need to fight, the tools you need to leverage to remediate to the most critical risks and how to continuously monitor the security of your application and environment.
