  • Back to School: Common AWS Misconfigurations
    Back to School: Common AWS Misconfigurations Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Aug 9 2017 26 mins
    Getting started on Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud is relatively straightforward, and empowers teams as never before to accelerate their business and innovate faster.

    To make the most of AWS, organizations must ensure compliance and security of their infrastructure, while optimizing cloud cost and expenses. Yet with AWS releasing new features and services nearly every day, this can prove challenging in a continuously evolving environment.

    In this webinar we will discuss ten of the most common AWS misconfigurations, and typical recommendations for resolving them. We’ve broken down these common errors in three buckets:

    - Security and Compliance
    - Cost and Expenses
    - Operational Best Practices.
  • TechTalk: Security Demo and S3 Breach Update
    TechTalk: Security Demo and S3 Breach Update Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Aug 3 2017 38 mins
    When choosing for a Cloud Management Platform (CMP) enterprises should be looking for Security and Compliance capabilities in addition to Cost Management and Cloud Governance. CloudCheckr is a full-service CMP that delivers "All of the above."

    Additionally, enterprises need to understand their role in the Shared Responsibility Model, in order to fully meet security standards like FedRAMP, HIPAA, PCI and more. The recent S3 breaches are examples of customers not using the tools AWS provides to keep their cloud secure.

    Join us for a hands-on demonstration of some of the more popular features of CloudCheckr, including:

    - Best Practice Checks
    - Automated "Fix Now" capabilities that can save time and effort
    - Security and Compliance tools

  • Back to School: Cloud Security Skills You Need in 2017 & Beyond
    Back to School: Cloud Security Skills You Need in 2017 & Beyond Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Aug 1 2017 23 mins
    In 2015, Cisco estimated that there were more than 1 million unfilled security jobs worldwide. At the same time, attacks are becoming more sophisticated, more disruptive, costlier and more frequent. The public cloud can play a pivotal role in helping organizations mitigate the risks of a malicious attack, as it provides a fundamentally more secure IT environment than traditional on-premise systems. Yet, despite this, security remains a key concern to organizations considering migrating their applications.

    During this digital workshop, Cloud Professor Todd Bernhard will teach you:

    - Differences between the security skillsets needed in the datacenter and the cloud
    - How the Shared Responsbility Model works in the cloud
    - Common mistakes and how to avoid them
    - Why you need the right tools combined with the right skillsets
  • Beginner's Guide to Public Sector Cloud Infrastructure
    Beginner's Guide to Public Sector Cloud Infrastructure Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager & Jonathan Morse, State Local Higher Education Account Executive Recorded: Jul 27 2017 63 mins
    Migrating to the cloud poses challenges for any organization, but there are particular concerns for the public sector. Government regulations like FedRAMP and the upcoming DFARS must be met, but security in the cloud is different than in the data center. Cloud providers use a Shared Responsibility Model, where they secure the physical infrastructure and the rest is up to the customer. In the public sector, budgets have to be justified... and used, at the risk of decreasing in the next year. Given the potential for Cloud Sprawl, without a Cloud Management Platform, expenses can get out of control.

    This webinar serves as a guide for public sector organizations looking to embrace the cloud. We will discuss the specific requirements of public sector organizations and explain the choices that will need to be made during such a migration. Topics covered include:

    - What terms do I need to know?
    - What questions do I need to ask?
    - What are some common pitfalls?
    - What tools are available to help?

  • Get Ready for DFARS - A CloudCheckr Workshop
    Get Ready for DFARS - A CloudCheckr Workshop Patrick Gartlan, CloudCheckr CTO Jeff Bennett, Allgress President/COO Tim Sandage, AWS Sr. Security Partner Strategist Recorded: Jul 20 2017 40 mins
    The clock is ticking on the latest cloud compliance mandate: NIST Special Publication 800-171, otherwise known as DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement). Any organization or contractor that holds or processes unclassified Department of Defense (DoD) data must ensure that they comply with the new DFARS clause.

    December 31, 2017 is the ultimate deadline by which to prove compliance, so action is recommended as soon as possible.

    In this webinar, Patrick Gartlan (CloudCheckr CTO), Jeff Bennett (Allgress President/COO), and Tim Sandage (AWS Sr. Security Partner Strategist) will lead an interactive workshop on what DFARS regulation means for your business, specifically:

    ✔ Specific requirements of the DFARS regulation

    ✔ Key controls that CloudCheckr provides to help you meet DFARS requirements

    ✔ Tools from Allgress that map DFARS requirements to CloudCheckr features

    - Opportunities to win business with pre-engagement analysis

    - Strategies and best practices to earn higher profitability and margins

  • Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs
    Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs Dave DeYager, CloudCheckr Support & Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Jul 10 2017 36 mins
    Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides organizations with the option of consolidated billing, to unify data from separate accounts under one centralized payer account. Consolidated billing enables simplified operations for large organizations, while increasing the possibility of volume discounts.

    However, with consolidation comes the responsibility of allocation; organizations with multiple accounts—departments, projects, customers, etc.—are faced with the challenge of enforcing accountability. For internal teams, budget allocation and forecasting can be a struggle; for Managed Service Providers, chargebacks and invoicing can be a nightmare.

    The CloudCheckr platform offers tagging to help user manage their instances, images, and EC2 resources. In this webcast, learn how to leverage consolidated billing and tagging to improve efficiencies and reduce cloud costs. Attendees will learn:

    - How consolidated billing helps to improve governance and save on volume purchasing for multiple cloud accounts
    - Why tagging is critical to managing budgets, allocating costs, and enabling chargebacks
    - What to consider when creating a tagging strategy
    - How CloudCheckr helps automate billing processes across accounts
