SANS 2022 Cloud Security Survey

  • Tuesday, 15 Mar 2022 1:00PM EDT (15 Mar 2022 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Chris Borales (Gigamon), Bernard Brantley (Corelight),, Carrie McDaniel (ExtraHop), Nick Fisher (Sysdig)

The state of cloud security is evolving. Many organizations are implementing new and more advanced cloud security services that offer cloud-focused controls and capabilities, including services and tools that provide network connectivity and security for end users and office locations, security monitoring and policy controls, and identity services, among others.

The SANS 2022 Cloud Security Survey explores the types of services organizations are using, what types of controls and tools provide the most value, and how effective cloud security brokering is for a range of use cases. The survey focuses on:

  • Cloud security skills gaps and requirements
  • Cloud security automation
  • Cloud security operations guardrails, tools, and processes
  • Cloud security threats and incidents

How to Defend Your Cloud Without Friction

The complexity of the cloud technology landscape creates a perfect place for attackers to hide and can serve as an ideal launchpad for attacks. Join us to learn why a prevent and protect approach can’t keep up with advanced threats and how you can implement a post-compromise defense strategy.

Ensuring Visibility Across the Modern Networking Landscape

The inherent complexity of hybrid and multi-cloud environments can lead to security blind spots and application performance issues that can slow cloud migration, adoption and increase security risks. You should seek out solutions that directly address these issues combining existing security, performance and observability tools with network-level intelligence and visibility to secure your cloud instances.

Cloud and Container Security
Cloud and containers are being adopted by a broad set of organizations as they try to maintain a competitive advantage. In our recent Cloud-Native Security and Usage Report, we found that 75% of containers in the cloud have vulnerabilities! Security and capacity planning are ever-present obstacles to running a well-tuned and more secure environment, no matter where you are in your journey. We identified critical insights and best practices, based on real-time data from billions of containers living in multiple clouds, and we’re eager to share. Join us to evaluate the maturity of your cloud-native infrastructure.

In this presentation we will cover:

• The latest trends in container and Kubernetes adoption
• Whether shifting security left is really working
• Why so many vulnerabilities make it to production
• Best practices for improving your security posture
