From Servers to Services - Securing Public Cloud Infrastructure for AWS

Presented by

Jim Reavis, Adrian Sanabria, Tim Prendergast

About this talk

Increasingly, security and risk (S&R) professionals must be able to securely migrate workloads to cloud providers like AWS. However, properly securing IaaS platforms involves much more than simply migrating physical servers to virtual instances. Today's dev teams are building cloud-native applications using IaaS services and APIs into which host-based security tools and network scanners have little to no visibility. To successfully defend IaaS infrastructure, S&R pros need to understand the security implications of Infrastructure as Code and and the importance of protecting the IaaS console and management plane. Join Cloud Security Alliance Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Jim Reavis, 451 Research analyst Adrian Sanabria, and Co-founder and CEO Tim Prendergast as they discuss: The differences in attack surface and vectors between on-premises and IaaS infrastructures The critical nature of defending the IaaS console and management plane How progressive enterprises have implemented effective security configuration and vulnerability management processes
