... and it's massive impact on cyber security
Cool post! Thanks for sharing! Interesting to note that "atomization" is happening everywhere across the digital value stream. It's not just applications -- but it's also data, structured and unstructured. Shrinking governance and security controls down to the microservices level is quite similar to shrinking governance and security controls down to individual data objects.
In the old days we invested in protecting singular monolithic apps and defending a singular enterprise perimeter. In the future we must govern security and risk associated with the atomic services that make up our applications -- and also the atomic particles of data that constitutes a huge part of modern the attack surface.
