These are critical questions every organization shifting to a serverless environment should be asking.

BSideLV: (De) Serial Killers’: Set during the Great Marshalling of Pickles Apocalypse; in the year 2015, the internet at large was made aware of a little-known kind of attack: Deserialization of Untrusted Data. Jenkins, JBoss, Oracle WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, Apache Struts and many more were destroyed by Remote Code Executions via complicated deserialization attacks. Gadget Chains smashed through WAFs and rooted systems. By the year 2017, OWASP declared deserialization attacks critical enough for its own OWASP Top 10 category.
