  • Speaker: Jonathan Rau

With continual increase of adoption of public cloud workloads, and the expansion of services therein, security and developer teams have a hard time keeping up with best practices of configurations. While the cloud service providers and commercial partners have helped bridge the gap with Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) teams are still left in the dark with not-often-used or newly launched services. Adopting Open Source Security tools can help bridge these gaps, extend current coverage, and further empower developer and security teams to detect issues before they become security incidents.

Watch this webinar to see a live demo of ElectricEye, and open-source AWS CSPM tool with over 320 available checks and 80 support services, which can help with extending your CSPM as well as:

- Learn how to use the ElectricEye CLI to quickly evaluate or discover resources

- Send findings to AWS Security Hub and other formats

- Alignment to compliance frameworks such as NIST CSF and ISO27001

- Centralized reporting using BI tools such as Amazon QuickSight
