Addressing Cloud Vulnerabilities

The cloud offers organizations tremendous opportunities, and this session is designed to help IT and security leaders understand and address the unique challenges related to securing applications in the public cloud. With a focus on securing the public cloud, we’ll address an organization’s typical cloud journey, including hybrid, all-in cloud and leveraging DevOps for increased agility.

We’ll start with an overview of the “shared responsibility” model that public cloud vendors use to clarify who’s responsible for the security of what – typically above and below the hypervisor or equivalent layer. Next, we’ll address specific use cases and customer examples which highlight some of the key challenges and solutions for securing applications, data, virtual infrastructure and cloud workloads.
Key Points Include:
  • Understanding of potential vulnerabilities in cloud workloads that attackers have exploited
  • Examples of use cases and solutions for protecting cloud workloads
  • Examples of how customers have addressed vulnerabilities at each stage of their cloud journey
