Find, fix, and prevent Terraform misconfigurations with Bridgecrew

By Guy

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to scan infrastructure-as-code as part of your code review process. Using Terraform, GitHub Actions, and Bridgecrew, we’ll show you how to find, fix, and prevent cloud misconfigurations.

Infrastructure-as-code (sometimes referred to as infrastructure code or abbreviated as IaC) is used to automate infrastructure deployment, scaling, and management using machine-readable configuration files.

Using infrastructure-as-code

Before we dive in, let’s talk a bit about the use cases of infrastructure-as-code frameworks like Terraform. Terraform provides ready-made infrastructure-as-code modules to build and scale cloud-hosted web applications with just a few lines of code. As that benefit has become more evident for teams deploying to complex multi-cloud environments, Terraform adoption has skyrocketed.
