Place your bets! How we run security for the whole Superbet group and still have time to play Stray ūüėČ

First off, this is not “another zero trust talk”! 

It’s about how we designed the security architecture in an environment with thousands of employees, multiple companies, infrastructure and services of virtually all shapes and sizes and not only keep our sanity but have time to think about innovation and research (and, of course, play Stray).
