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.

Shift as Far Left as You Can to Protect Cloud Native Applications

Cloud infrastructure, containers, and serverless functions continue to be deployed at an increasing pace. With frequent release cycles combined with the immutable nature of cloud native applications, devops and security teams can combine their powers to shift security left across the application lifecycle. In this talk, Palo Alto Networks product leaders will discuss shift-left security best practices, requirements, and trends.

Changes in Cloud Security Adoption Trends

For many organizations, the accelerated shift to the cloud also means completely reimagining and optimizing their stacks to achieve a cloud-native implementation. In what may have been a multi-year strategy for an enterprise, now has been reduced to months or less. In this session, we will explore key cloud security trends that IT and security leaders should keep an eye on to ensure they are prepared for the rapidly approaching cloud-native future.

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.

Observability and Security: A Match for Cloud Native

Cloud native patterns are driving us to bake observability into our applications and infrastructure through metrics, distributed tracing and other approaches. In this session, we will discuss how this monitoring data and the observability graph can help us better understand and detect security attack vectors, as well as serve as early indicators and signals of security related events. We will cover both strategies for how to use this data for security purposes, and review studies from real world events where monitoring data proved key to early detection and prevention.

Best Practices for Securing Public Cloud Data Storage Services

The appeal of easily storing nearly an unlimited amount of data had led to the explosive adoption of public cloud storage services like AWS S3, Azure Blob Storage, and Google Cloud Storage. With zettabytes of data being stored in these services, data classification, preventing exposure, and the spread of malware hidden in data is of paramount importance. In this talk, we will discuss best practices for protecting PII, intellectual property, and other types of sensitive data stored across public cloud storage services.
