A well-crafted container or kubernetes avoids using excessive privileges, shipping unused packages, leaking credentials, and will expose a minimal attack surface. By removing known risks in advance, you’ll reduce security management and operational overhead; however, not everything can be known and prevented in advance. You cannot forget about security since the container is running.

Join this session to gain clear direction on how to:
- Image build and apply Dockerfile best practices
- Reduce the attack surface and optimize size for distribution using multistage builds
- Manage threats and vulnerabilities, like log4j
