Transforming Your Enterprise in the Digital Age

Enterprises embrace cloud computing as an enabler for frequent value delivery, requiring increased agility and pace of innovation. In this session, Miriam McLemore, Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services, will explore the potential for transformation that comes with cloud adoption and discuss how some of the world’s leading enterprises were able to transform and quickly deliver business value outcomes.

Customer Responsibility VS CSP Responsibility: Securing the Cloud

Enterprises often struggle to adapt to new management paradigms as they migrate their workloads to cloud. When on-premises, they are solely responsible for everything (hardware, operating system, middleware, software, security, etc.), but once they migrate to the cloud, cloud service providers take over varying responsibilities depending on the service model (e.g., IaaS, PaaS or SaaS). Google Cloud, specifically, provides some cloud-native security controls but It isn’t always clear where their security responsibilities begin and end. In this session, Jennifer will talk about how emerging use cases are evolving Google Cloud and Anthos platform requirements, as well as the implications for security and privacy.

Securing a Kubernetes Cluster with RedHat

Organizations are rapidly adopting containers and Kubernetes to more easily develop and manage the applications that deliver business value. However, in order to use Kubernetes in a production environment, you need to build security in your DevOps pipeline with both proactive and reactive security measures. In this session, we explore OpenShift’s secure-by-design platform, Built-in security features, and Red Hat’s new Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes Product.

Security for the Cloud Operating Model

To unlock the fastest path to value of the cloud, enterprises must consider how to industrialize the application delivery process across each layer of the cloud. This means embracing the cloud operating model and tuning people, process, and tools to it. Learn how to simplify operations for a multi-cloud reality, where security can be applied consistently regardless of target cloud environment, and what success looks like for organizations in terms of provisioning, securing, connecting and running cloud native environments.
