As more organizations store sensitive data in the cloud, and as data protection regulations become more stringent, security personnel must develop a strategy to protect their assets in the AWS cloud. However, this poses many important questions, such as: How can I securely migrate data from on-premises storage volumes to AWS services, or from existing AWS services to new AWS services? What controls are needed? And what performance requirements must be met?

In this recorded webcast, SANS analyst and senior instructor Dave Shackleford will explore the controls that are critical to data security and how to scale on-premises data protection strategies to the cloud.

Attendees will learn:

  • The changes organizations must consider before storing data in and scaling data protection to the AWS cloud
  • How to use data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, access controls, user behavior analytics and data life cycle controls as integral parts of a data protection strategy
  • Key steps in scaling data protection to the AWS cloud

Register for this webinar to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by cloud security expert Dave Shackleford.
