For those of you who were able to stream the “Your Move to the Cloud Secured” event on Thursday, September 20, 2018, we are glad you were able to participate and learn more about Palo Alto Networks and Securing a Cloud environment.
For those who were not able to attend for whatever reason, I will try to catch you up on what happened and what you missed.
The cloud is a big and daunting place, full of a lot of challenges. Securing the cloud can be hard, as you have to worry about Fragmentation & Complexity, Manual Processes, Human Error, and New APP Architectures. Your security needs to adapt, and your security strategies need to be broad to cover Mobile, SAAS, and Cloud.
Palo Alto Networks Vision of Cloud Security consists of:
Inline – Protect & segment cloud workloads
API Based – Continuous security & compliance
Host – Secure OS & apps within workloads
In the event, we answered the following questions:
Applying consistent protection across cloud environments
Embedding security in your DevOps processes
Automating incident response in the cloud
Ensuring new technologies—like containers—are protected
Tim Prendergast – Chief Cloud Officer Palo Alto Networks
Maya Kaczorowski – Product Manager, Container Security Google
Adam Geller – SVP of Cloud Products Palo Alto Networks
Bryan Lee – Unit 42 Threat Intelligence Analyst Palo Alto Networks
Armon Dadgar – Founder and Co-CTO HashiCorp
The agenda consisted of a Main Session (about 39 minutes) along with a total of five different breakout sessions to address the many aspects of securing the cloud environment along with additional resources listed at the bottom of the page.
We’ll cover the security challenges organizations are facing in their move to the cloud, ways to address these obstacles, and how the future of cloud security is changing as new technologies like containers are deployed in enterprise cloud environments.
Then attend one—or all—of our breakout sessions:
CISO/Network Practitioner Perspective: Three Perspectives on the Changing Expectations for Network Security Hosts Derek Vadala – Managing Director and CISO Moody’s Shankar Chandrasekhar, VP of Cyber Security Engineering Moody’s Bill O’Brien, Senior Network/Telecom Manager FTD Companies
The rapid adoption of public cloud has disrupted well-established enterprise IT operating models, including network security. Network security teams are facing new and changing expectations around their role in the cloud. New skills for managing and securing cloud infrastructure are required, and closer interactions with DevOps teams is the new normal. This session will provide both C-level and practitioner perspectives on how networking and security roles have changed, what has remained the same, and, most importantly, how security can be an enabler for the move to the cloud.
Join industry-leading Security Operations and threat research experts as we jump in to debate just how the cloud has transformed their day-to-day jobs. This session will offer insights on the latest threats and adversary tactics used in the cloud, and how security analysts are adapting their prevention, investigation, and response efforts to keep organizations safe.
Saying “Yes” to Security Can Speed Application Development Host Armon Dadgar – Founder and Co-CTO HashiCorp
Development teams are continuously innovating new ways to increase their speed of application delivery in the cloud. Join this session to learn how developers embed security into their development processes and CI/CD pipeline. Hear about the evolution and current state of DevOps tools and best practices to ensure that security gets built into the application architecture from the start.
Portable & Secure: Embracing Containers Without Fear Host Maya Kaczorowski – Product Manager, Container Security Google Adam Geller – SVP of Cloud Products Palo Alto Networks
Containers are making it easier for developers to build and deliver applications in the cloud. However, managing risk around container deployments remains a significant challenge for security teams. Join this session to learn about the security challenges around container deployments and best practices to follow while securing containers.
Compliance for Cloud: What Changes? Host Aaron Wilson, Founder ScaleSec
Organizations are adopting cloud technologies at a rapid pace and with each of these transitions leading to increased cybersecurity risk. Join us for a discussion with our speaker on how their view of risk and compliance has evolved and changed as they have adopted and operationalized cloud technologies.
If you are unfamiliar with Cloud security and concerns before this event, then you will be much more informed after you are able to view the Main Session and whichever breakout sessions interest you.
