It goes without saying, you can't secure what you can't see. However, as organizations continue to migrate workloads to virtual and cloud environments, many are challenged with gaining the visibility they need to truly understand their security posture. What is the best approach to ensuring that visibility? What should be included? What are the unique challenges posed by these environments? And, how does visibility impact CIS critical security controls, such as continuous vulnerability assessment and remediation or maintaining secure configurations?

In this session, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and Skybox Security Director of Professional Services Delivery Tony Turner discuss the importance of gaining comprehensive visibility of virtual and cloud networks. They will cover best practices and examples of how to quickly understand what IT assets exist in your cloud environment. And, how that understanding informs your overall security program, managing physical, virtual and cloud environments holistically.
