Whether you are already hosting applications on Amazon Web Services, or looking to expand your enterprise footprint into public cloud services, security and compliance will be top of mind. Like the doors and windows in your building, your web-based applications are the most visible points of entry for cyber attackers.
Therefore they are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise – especially as vulnerabilities and attacks against your applications are completely up to you to monitor, discover and remediate, and not your cloud service provider.
Register for this impactful webinar presented by James Brown, Director of Cloud Solutions Architecture who will review in detail the Five Reasons why you need to protect web-based applications in AWS:
1.Web applications are the number 1 attack vector in AWS
2.There is no one type of web application attack
3.Successful web attacks can cost you ……… a lot
4.Security responsibility is shared with AWS, but you need to understand what they don’t cover (your application security)
5.Your customers care
Amazon Web Services has provided companies of all sizes with on demand elastic IT infrastructure services in the cloud totaling more than 50 services. This series gives you an opportunity to ask questions from an AWS expert live on any topic and also hear an overview of the subset of services/tools that AWS offers in big data and analytics.
Either submit questions during the session or ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email please include your NAME, COMPANY and JOB TITLE.

IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

Cyber attacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting hosted & cloud strategies – something that would be unheard of in a physical infrastructure environment.
In this webinar, a security expert from Alert Logic will discuss the latest trends in cybercrime, and the motivation and methods currently used by hackers, and their impact on cloud security, including:
•An expert profile of today’s evolved hackers and threat landscape
