Forecast: Increasing Clouds with a High Chance it’s Your Fault

Future Cyber Tech, Application Security & DevOps Theatre

Thu 1st Nov 11:30 to 12:00

Using public clouds for enterprise datacenters is mainstream. However, the number of services and options being offered is daunting. Using a ‘one-size-fits-all’ interface to scroll through thousands of assets trying to find a misconfigured or exposed S3 bucket is folly.
You likely don’t have experienced, trained security professionals maintaining your cloud environment(s) either and this gap exacerbates your risks…unskilled hands or one fat-finger can have dire consequences.
In this session you’ll learn why Gartner says, “Through 2022, at least 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” and how you can avoid validating their forecast.

What you will take away from this session

  • Learn the subtle yet significant differences between on-premise datacenter security and public cloud security
  • Learn why IAM is so critical when using public cloud for your datacenter
  • Learn why a Lift and Shift strategy fails and why you should begin (your cloud strategy) with the end in mind
  • Learn why there have been so many S3 exposures and issues and how you can avoid repeating them
