Prioritizing Security Operations in the Cloud through the Lens of the NIST Framework

  • Speakers: John Pescatore, David Aiken

With more business applications moving into the cloud, it is important to ensure that best practices make the leap from on-premises procedures to cloud protections in a way that integrates security across both environments. Making sense of the options available starts with gaining a framework to understand the operations activities that matter in the cloud 'establishing broader visibility, integrating threat intelligence, and others'to form a repeatable approach as additional workloads move to the cloud.

In this airing of a webcast hosted by AWS with SANS on January 31, 2019, SANS Director of Emerging Technologies John Pescatore will show how to use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) to make the leap to securing infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) and hybrid cloud implementations by selecting and integrating the most effective and efficient security services, taking advantage of native cloud security services and third-party controls. Attendees will learn:

  • What is different about security cloud workloads
  • Why using a framework to organize efforts is effective
  • How to implement controls at the perimeter, host and data boundaries
  • What best practices organizations should implement
  • How to deploy secure IAAS and hybrid cloud implementations
