Meeting The Challenge of Modern Security Threats In The Cloud

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.

October 6, 2022
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM ET (8:00 AM – 2:00 PM PT)

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.

Topics Include:
What strategies, tools, and policies cybersecurity leaders are turning to keep cloud environments secure
Where the real challenges in cloud and control security lie
Actionable insights and new approaches to protecting your organization’s data

Cloud Security Assessments 101

Sponsored by: Mandiant
Presented by: Doug Saylors, Co-Lead, Cybersecurity Practice, ISG

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.

Discover ways to balance security with friction and to create a safe authentication experience without compromising on privacy.

Sponsored by: Sysdig
Panelists: Anna Belak, Director of Thought Leadership, Michael Isbitski, Director of Cybersecurity Strategy, & Michael Clark, Director of Threat Research, Sysdig

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:

  • What types of attacks are popular in the cloud and why?
  • How cryptojacking works and how to avoid becoming a victim?
  • What is hiding in malicious Docker images and how to protect yourself?

Common Entry Points Exposed on the Internet

Sponsored by: Mandiant
Presented by: Jonathan Cran, VP, Research & Engineering, & Nader Zaveri, Sr. Manager, Incident Response & Remediation, Mandiant

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
