Meeting The Challenge of Modern Security Threats In The Cloud
As cloud adoption accelerates, cybersecurity experts are called upon to lock down increasingly distributed enterprises - even as skilled security staff remain thin on the ground.
Enterprise attack surfaces are expanding, and the complexity of the cloud makes it not only an ideal playground for cyber criminals, but more vulnerable to internal threats, from misconfiguration to theft, damage, and data loss.
That’s why it’s critical that IT leaders prioritize cloud security expertise and capabilities. Unfortunately, traditional security strategies and tools aren’t cutting it anymore – they simply don’t scale and can’t keep pace with either the speed of digital innovation or increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats. IT leaders need to move beyond traditional approaches to security monitoring, detection and response to meet the challenge of an increasingly complex tech stack and modern security threats in the cloud.
These challenges might sound familiar. You lack visibility into what data is in your cloud applications and infrastructure. You’re worried about data being stolen from your cloud applications. And you can’t fully control who can access sensitive data. You’re not alone. This keynote will reveal the top cloud security issues of today and how to overcome them.
Cloud security assessments are increasingly popular these days—and rightly so. According to a recent IBM/Ponemon study, 45% of breaches this year will occur on cloud platforms, with a large percentage the fault of your company, not your CSP. With so much at risk, it’s clear why organizations are turning to cloud security assessments to highlight vulnerabilities. But you’ve got options when it comes to assessments … everything from operational assessments using DIY checklists and open-source tools to enterprise solutions coupled with Cyber Risk Quantification solutions. This keynote breaks down the world of cloud security assessments to help you choose the right one.
A strong customer identity foundation should empower businesses with simple, secure, and adaptable identity platforms to fit their unique needs while creating a seamless experience for employees and customers. Identity is much more than logging-in and signing-up; it provides a way to connect with the people who matter most to your brand, to establish trust, and increase conversion opportunities. Discover ways to balance security with friction and to create a safe authentication experience without compromising on privacy.
Cloud adoption is the trend of the decade, and threat actors are tailoring their methods to this new attack surface. Cryptojacking is the most prevalent type of cloud attack due to the low risk and high reward for the perpetrator. But even newer technology like containers is being used for evil as attackers plant unpleasant surprises in public repositories, exposing your business to potential supply chain compromise.
Join us to learn about what Sysdig’s Threat Research Team is seeing out there and what you can do to protect yourself. They will discuss their individual thoughts on these questions:
Ransomware is the biggest threat to all organizations of every size and every industry. The frequency and severity of attacks is ever increasing and the unprepared are paying ransoms of millions and ending up in the news. It is vital to understand how your organization can recover rapidly from any attack to avoid disruption without paying a ransom, especially in the cloud.
Join Chris Rogers from Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company to learn more about:
Legacy tools designed before the cloud era do not deliver comprehensive visibility into the entire external attack surface, leaving assets out of sight and potentially vulnerable. Confirming this, Mandiant observed 21K+ critical and high severity issues across the customer base from January to March 2022.
Join Jonathan Cran and Nader Zaveri for a discussion on the common entry points identified by Attack Surface Management in Q1 2022. They’ll discuss:
• How organizations end up with exposed external assets
• The methodology behind issue identification at scale
• Actions the security team can take to harden the external attack surface
• Where an attack surface management approach fits into the overall cyber defense program at any organization
It may feel that cyber attackers have seemingly boundless time and resources, while you have neither. However, there are ways you can tighten your cyber defense that won’t require you to do battle with the CFO first. In fact, you may already be paying for cloud security tools that you aren’t using. In this session, learn how to best assess your cloud security risks, optimize your defenses, validate your controls, and orchestrate your security tools to ensure you’re using your cloud security resources most efficiently and protecting your organization against the most important threats.
