Your organization has likely begun to embrace the shift to cloud based business operations in recent years, or at the very least is actively investigating doing so. The cloud brings many benefits, but from a security and risk standpoint there are new considerations which were simpler to tackle when everything resided within the confines of the traditional network. Visibility, protection, detection, and response all require new ways of thinking in order to ensure your SOC team can properly support your organizations business and innovation needs without impacting its security posture. Join Jean-Paul and Sam as they discuss the implications of securing cloud applications, and provide recommendations and food-for-thought on how to approach cloud security.

Speaker Bios

Samantha Humphries

Samantha has 20 years of experience in cyber security, and during this time has held a plethora of roles, one of her favourite titles being Global Threat Response Manager, which definitely sounds more glamorous than it was in reality. She has defined strategy for multiple security products and technologies, helped hundreds of organisations of all shapes, sizes, and geographies recover and learn from cyberattacks, and trained anyone who’ll listen on security concepts and solutions.

In her current regeneration, she’s thoroughly enjoying being a part of the global product marketing team at Exabeam, where she has responsibility for EMEA, SaaS, plus anything that has “cloud” in the name. Sam’s a go-to person for data compliance related questions, and has to regularly remind people that she isn’t a lawyer, although if she had a time machine she probably would be.

She authors articles for various security publications, and is a regular speaker and volunteer at industry events, including BSides, IPExpo, CyberSecurityX, The Diana Initiative, and Blue Team Village (DEFCON).

Jean-Paul Bergeaux

With more than 22 years of experience in the Federal technology industry, Jean-Paul Bergeaux is currently the Federal CTO for GuidePoint Security. Jean-Paul’s career has been marked by success in technical leadership roles with ADIC (now Quantum), NetApp and Commvault and SwishData. Jean-Paul focuses on identifying customers’ challenges and architecting innovative solutions to solve their complex problems. He is also a thought leader on topics that are top of mind for Federal IT Managers like Cyber Security, Cloud, Big Data, and Business Continuity.
