Most enterprises today are using some form of cloud computing, but the migration from on-premises to cloud can be challenging.

The lack of consistency in tools and complexity of the cloud environment often impacts security postures. While new tools native to the cloud might help, the path to implementation in various environments, including hybrid models, is not clear. And what role will automation and emerging DevSecOps play?

This webcast will take a look at the current state of cloud security, and some specific issues and recommendations for security best practices while taking into account typical staffing, technology and other resource issues. Register now for this webcast, and be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS instructor and cloud expert Dave Shackleford.
