Cloud Native Runtime Security is a complex and fascinating problem space. Recently I announced moving to Sysdig, Inc for full time employment as the Chief OSS Advocate. Here at Sysdig I am fortunate enough to have an opportunity to work directly on this CNCF project. Falco helps audit and secure a system by parsing kernel events at runtime. This is useful is situations where prevention isn’t enough to completely lock down a system. Learn more about Falco on falco.org, and get involved with the community if you are interested in contributing.




Cloud Native Infrastructure

Kris Nova co authored a book with Justin Garrison called Cloud Native Infrastructure.

The book looks at many of the lessons Kris and Justin both have learned over their careers at solving DevOps and Infrastructure related problems in the field. Kris has given many presentations on the manner, and continues to speak for the idea that infrastructure should now be encapsulated as software.

The book is available for sale and more information can be found on cnibook.info.
