Threat detection & response is vitally important for security. In fact, it is included in the OWASP’s top 10 security risks. In this article we will dive deep into how to deploy Amazon’s threat detection service i.e GuardDuty, to a multi-account/multi-region cloud environment using Terraform, and how to connect the service with Slack, for real-time security notifications.
GuardDuty is a fairly easy service to deploy and operate on a single AWS account. But the complexity increases when it comes to deploying it bigger multi-account environments and connecting it with external tools such as Slack. At last, IaC although crucial, may…
Through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault, according to Gartner. Infrastructure misconfiguration remains the top cause of data breaches in the cloud.
In Amazon Web Services, this is where AWS Config security service comes into play.
The AWS Config Concepts page provides a detailed but also complex definition of the AWS Config terminology. In this article, I’ll attempt to simplify it and mention only the core and most important concepts and functionalities of this tool. …
Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. Just learn from those who have already done it well.
Design patterns are general, reusable solutions to common software engineering bugs. They are good practices developed by trial and error, labor, and countless hours of debugging by programmers in the past, so that developing can be easier, faster, cleaner, bug-free for us today. In short software design patterns are all about not reinventing the wheel.
Design patterns gained popularity after the publishing of the book Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software was published in 1994 by the so-called “Gang of Four”…

We can think of natural sciences, as sciences that reverse engineer the system of the natural world. For instance, neuroscientists study the human brain, collect and analyze its data, and attempt to understand the way it operates.
On the other hand, we can think of computer science, as the science that develops a system — a technological world (instead of reverse engineering it). For example an artificial intelligence engineer, uses data and statistical methods in order to create a “virtual brain”, one could say.
In this context, computer science and natural sciences progress towards the same direction, but begin from…
