What Every Security Pro Should Know About Cloud Hacking

  • Madhu Somu, Director of Technology
  • Wednesday, August 15th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

As organizations adopt cloud computing, the perimeter moves into unprotected territory within these new environments. Where IT sees the cloud as an opportunity, security sees a new attack surface. Most companies have heavily invested in traditional multi-layer, security appliances - like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems which help with "north-south" protection. But, these controls are less effective in securing lateral or "east-west" traffic where the new perimeters sit. Worse, they were not designed to handle the sheer volume of cloud traffic - a significant operational hurdle.

Join this interactive lunch and learn to learn more about:

- The latest cloud attack methods every security team should understand

- Anatomy of specific attack types including cross cloud, cross workload, cross data center, cross tenant, as well as, orchestration and serverless attacks

- Best practices on how to guard your enterprise
