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
•What attackers are really after, why, and how they’re getting what they want
•How hackers monetise stolen data
•Common methods and tools hackers use to exploit vulnerabilities
•How to integrate security & threat intelligence capabilities into your cloud and on-premise environments
The webinar will also cover how fully managed security services can secure the application and infrastructure stack across your infrastructure – whether dedicated, hybrid or the cloud. Managed security services such as intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment and log management coupled with deep security content, and 24x7 continuous monitoring helps Rackspace customers to reduce risk, increase application availability, and reduce the cost of running in-house teams and technologies to manage their security and compliance outcomes.
