💬 Title: How Firebase and Serverless help you quickly build secure apps + Q&A Session by Mike McDonald, Product Manager at Google.

Description: In a world filled with security breaches making the front page of newspapers, how do you balance the velocity gains of serverless without compromising application security? In this talk, we'll discuss common threat models, as well as how you can use the tools provided in Firebase and Google Cloud to secure your applications. After explaining what Firebase and Google Cloud are and why you might use them, we'll dive deep on best practices for using identity based authentication as well as how to configure Firebase Rules and Cloud IAM for least privilege access. We'll also talk about all the work GCP automatically does for you to keep your app secure.

Bio: Mike helps developers build better mobile and web apps as a product manager on the Firebase team. Mike has been working on Firebase for four years, and has previously worked developing iOS apps at the Omni Group and building microprocessors at Texas Instruments. In his free time, he enjoys spending time in the outdoors, cooking, and hacking on embedded hardware.
