  • Security by Design – Modernizing Technology Governance
    Security by Design – Modernizing Technology Governance Tim Sandage, Sr. Security Partner Strategist, AWS Recorded: Oct 12 2017 33 mins
    Up-front design of your cloud environment can be done in a way that creates a reliably secure and controlled environment no matter how the AWS resources are used. This session will focus on "Security by Design" principles and show how an AWS environment can be configured to provide a reliable operational security control capability across, such as:

    - Organizational governance
    - Asset inventory and control
    - Logical access controls
    - Operating system configuration
    - Database security
    - Applications security configurations

    Why this session:

    Cloud Computing is becoming the new normal, the question isn’t “if” anymore, it’s really just “how fast can we move?” and “what are we going to move first”

    Because of this trend organizations need to understand their security and compliance capabilities and shared responsibilities for security as they migrate resources to the cloud. Whether its clinical trial simulations with Bristol Myers-Squibb, who uses AWS to run clinical trial simulations for 64% less cost; in 1.2 hours vs. 60 hours or Galata Chemicals who are running their development and test workloads in the cloud. Organizations need to start with a “Secure by Design approach, which support security at scale as they increase their use of cloud resources.”

  • Saving Your Bacon with the Cloud When Your Data Center is On Fire
    Saving Your Bacon with the Cloud When Your Data Center is On Fire Kenneth Hui, Technical Marketing Engineer at Rubrik Recorded: Oct 12 2017 33 mins
    Ok, so your data center may not catch on fire (at least we hope not). However, the consequences can be just as dire if critical data is lost, a virtual machine crashes or a portion of your data center becomes unavailable. In an emergency, how confident are you about restoring your company’s data in a timely fashion, especially when every minute of downtime may mean lost revenues from and credibility with your customers. What if your company can’t afford the cost of maintaining a disaster recovery site? How long would it take for you to recover from a site disaster?

    Participants will learn:

    - How you can leverage the public cloud for cost effective DR for your on-premises infrastructure

    - What factors do you need to consider to use the Cloud for DR

    - Different approaches to architecting DR in the Cloud, including pilot light, warm standby and hot site.

  • Game, Set, Match: Leveraging Compliance as a Competitive Advantage
    Game, Set, Match: Leveraging Compliance as a Competitive Advantage Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Oct 12 2017 13 mins
    This talk will focus on how compliance can be transitioned from a costly manual burden to a business enabler using automation. One of the biggest challenges faced by organizations today is the use of manual methods like spreadsheets and email for compliance management. This long-time practice is unable to keep pace with the myriad of workflows and processes required which leads to constant firefighting, fines, increased cost and loss of accountability. Adopting an automated platform brings the benefits of being compliant in less time using a streamlined assessment process with better business alignment, accountability, higher profits and lower costs.
