A few years ago, Alex Cherednichenko was a team leader on a tech startup. He received a notification from AWS that they were burning $40,000 per day in server power! It turned out their AWS keys got into hands of some crafty crypto miners. Unsure of what to do, Alex and the team started mitigation and investigation which led to a designer on their very first day who happened to know the exact solution to their problem. Hear what happened next in this very special Session.
