Make sure your security team is ready for the cloud

The cloud is a major business enabler that will transform information technology for decades to come. Security teams must figure out how to deploy public cloud services and platforms to be more secure than legacy on-premise environments. This means that security professionals must develop a deep understanding of cloud provider capabilities, secure architectures like hybrid cloud and multi-cloud deployments, and modern development processes that enable their organizations to deploy changes at a rate that sets themselves apart from the competition and attackers alike.

Learn the latest in cloud security best practices

At this Summit, cloud and DevSecOps experts from leading organizations will present case studies and lessons learned based on their real-world experiences. You can join fellow security professionals and cloud security practitioners in exploring new ideas, innovative approaches, and the latest tools for improving the reliability, integrity, and security of applications and infrastructure.

Topics that will be covered during the two-day Summit:

• AWS, Azure, and GCP Security Best Practices
• DevSecOps Case Studies
• Security Automation and Operations
• Architecting for hybrid and multi-cloud
• Microservice Security
• Serverless Security
• Cloud Native Security (Containers, Kubernetes)
• Data Protection and Encryption
• Identity and Access Management (IAM)
• Threat Detection in the Cloud
• Cloud Monitoring and Incident Response
