Cloud Security 101: The Basics of Mitigating Risk and Increasing the Operational Posture of your Public Cloud


April 29, 2021 at 1:00 PM CT

With Speaker Benjamin Robinson

Cloud security differs from On-Prem security. Learn what to focus on in order to increase cloud security and operational posture.  During this workshop you will:

  • Gain an understanding of proper configurations of cloud resources
  • Discover how to evaluate the changes that occur, and how they affect security
  • Understand the distinction between changes made by users, cloud platforms, and how it impacts operational readiness

We will use security frameworks like CIS and NIST to establish an anchor point for evaluating security and compliance, then use the resource change to conduct deeper inspection.

Expect to develop a comfort level with the understanding of the hyper-fast changing cloud landscape driven by cloud providers, software vendors, and employees, including what to look for and how to leverage CIS and NIST as a starting point.

    The Cloud Conundrum: Parsing the Cloud Visibility Problem


    Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 1:00 PM EST (2021-05-18 17:00:00 UTC)

    With Speakers John Grange & Dave Shackleford

    Cloud adoption was already well underway when the pandemic accelerated the need for faster adoption than anyone could have anticipated. Organizations of all sizes were forced to confront an abrupt shift to remote work for the majority of their staff. Today, cloud and DevOps leaders do not have centralized, actionable visibility into their clouds state and security, which greatly increases risk.

    Plain and simple, you can’t afford to neglect cloud security, financially or reputationally. So, how can DevOps leaders drive cloud asset management and scale their teams while maintaining cloud security? Join us for a lively discussion with John Grange and Dave Shackleford, who will address:

    • Approaches to cloud security in a DevOps world

    • The nature of cloud risks across deployment models

    • How organizations can reduce the risk of breach in the cloud

    • Multi-cloud security and how it impacts your approach

    • Biggest multi-cloud security pitfalls
