10 Things Security Teams Need to Know about Cloud Security‚®

  • Dave Shackleford
  • Thursday, November 29th, 6:00pm - 6:45pm

More and more organizations are moving data, systems, and applications into cloud service provider (CSP) environments all the time. The reasons for this are many - cost, efficiency, improved operations, features, and many more. However, security teams are still trying to figure this whole "cloud" thing out. What are the biggest issues? How do we assess CSP environments? What are the most important questions to ask? What technologies are emerging to help us? These questions and more plague security teams every day.

In this presentation, Dave will discuss ten key points that all security teams should understand about cloud infrastructure and security. Attendees will walk away with:

  • Ten concrete areas of cloud security focus, with takeaways from each.
  • Ideas for how to improve cloud security assessment and audit programs
  • Technologies that should be evaluated now and in the near future for solving cloud security challenges
  • Examples of what other organizations are doing to address these challenges
