Security Strategies in the cloud

Speaker: Ken Bigelow (UBC)

The need to innovate faster and shift to cloud-native application architectures isn’t just driving complexity, it is also creating significant vulnerability blind spots.

Today, more than ever we are migrating to cloud-native application architectures. Helping teams scale infrastructure with unprecedented speeds requires some understanding of every layer of the cloud stack not including, networking, operating systems, VM's, containers and applications within. With recent critical vulnerabilities such as the Apache Log4j 2 that leave many enterprise applications open to exploits which can lead to data breaches, crypto mining, and ransomware.

We will explore various methods of securing your cloud environment. As well best practices for general security for users accessing cloud resources.
