The Security Digest: Week 17

Hello and welcome to TSD, your regular blog post with top of mind security issues. TSD began as an internal newsletter that our Security Lead, Daniel Tobin, would circulate to the team each Tuesday.

Check back here every Tuesday for more TSD or sign up below to stay in the loop!

Please reach out to us directly, via or on Twitter at @dant24 if you have any questions, concerns, tips or anything else!

A Shout Out:

We’re big fans of security as code and projects like Open Policy Agent (OPA) and their related projects Conftest and Gatekeeper, and Konstraint is a brand new project that further enhances the ecosystem and makes them easier to use.

Check out Konstraint on GitHub today.

That’s owl for now!
