Securing Your Healthcare Data with OPA - Martin Pratt, Medudoc & Ash Narkar, Styra

In this talk, we will describe our “Shift Left” approach to security by using OPA to codify and enforce policies across our microservice architecture.

We will focus on the design of our OPA driven application development process that allows us to define custom security policies using OPA and enforce them by injecting our apps with an Envoy sidecar resulting in policy-enabled apps that are now ready to provide least-privilege access to PHI and PII data of our users.

In our demo we will show real-world examples of how we restrict access to sensitive data as well as how we control inbound and outbound traffic from our apps.
