Security is everyone's concern and capturing risks early is always better than facing problems later on. In the infrastructure as code space, where Terraform is an obvious choice to manage cloud environments, we now also have tfsec, which is a static analysis tool that helps to scan Terraform templates and find any potential security issues. It comes with preset rules for different cloud providers including AWS and Azure. We always like tools that help to mitigate security risks, and tfsec not only excels in identifying security risks, it's also easy to install and use.
