The main reason I wanted to read this book was because of the writer, Julien Vehent, who leads the Firefox Operations Security team at Mozilla, and is responsible for the security of Firefox’s high-traffic cloud services and public websites. For me personally, Mozilla is one of the technology companies that puts people before profits and has a very important mission: to keep the internet open and accessible to all. Besides that, I am also very interested in Linux and standard DevOps practices li ...more

First of all, I think this book is not suitable for junior engineers. It requires some level of experience and familiarity with DevOps, security, cloud and modern software development concepts. In fact the author also shows this attitude by skipping some parts; I don't think this is bad at all.

There are some typos and errors here and there:

A great book on cloud security. Very detailed and comprehensive. Of broader interest -to anyone interested in security, not just devops as the title suggests. There is a dedicated devopsy chapter, the rest is broader, touching all layers. Also includes a generalist chapter, providing systematic risk management frameworks.

A much more advanced book than I was anticipating. A lot of applicable things for my team but tons of stuff that went way over my head.
