Fireside Chat | Scaling up your Cloud Security Program: Advanced Techniques and Common Pitfalls
The specific challenges of securing an expansive multi-cloud or hybrid environment go far beyond the cloud-provider baselines and compliance best practices. Decision makers are moving beyond the legacy tool portfolio standards to address the need for a new approach to people, process, and technology strategy.
In this fireside chat, we’ll outline and then dive into the most salient and unique challenges for mature cloud sec teams, including a lack of visibility, the ephemeral nature of the cloud, and inflexible processes. Then we’ll discuss a few new approaches to address these challenges in your strategy immediately. Key elements of securing cloud environments (IaaS/PaaS and SaaS) across the major public cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure) and share critical insights on how modern defenders should be approaching the most salient challenges of cloud security, including:
- Why cloud threats look different and how to model them
- Addressing and eliminating the dreaded data silo
