2017 marked the 10-year anniversary of Amazon’s AWS, and with it a decade of mainstream awareness of the concept of the public cloud. As we begin the year, the trends that will drive the technology industry through 2018 are becoming apparent. Among these trends is a greater maturity surrounding discussions about cloud computing.
In this webinar attendees will learn how 2018 will be a year where the importance of robust multi-cloud management capabilities becomes clear. Organizations of all sizes will seek out solutions that transcend any individual public cloud provider while still providing visibility and management of their own on-premises environments.

Tim Sandage Senior Security Partner Strategist, AWS
Governments, enterprises and organizations are striving to keep up with the current threat landscape. Security and compliance of regulated workloads rely on too many manual processes, a lack of resources, skills and budgets.
Security and risk management leaders continue to labor over how they secure current, legacy and cloud resources within their limited constraints. This Cloud Leaders session introduces the concept of Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) used for constraining, tracking, publishing continuous security configurations, integration, deployments and treatments which can be certified against common security frameworks.
The result enables cloud engineers and security practitioners to design, architect and implement automation in an AWS customer account to automatically enforce security and compliance requirements.
You already know the benefits of the cloud: agility, scalability, even security. Security can be even easier in the cloud than an on-premise environment. But can cloud security become a performance advantage?
When you integrate automation with cloud security, things start to get weird. Security, compliance, and risk management suddenly change from oppressive time sinks that infuriate leadership into something radically transformative. However, getting there isn’t simple. You can’t simply forklift your NGFW drop it into an EC2 container and call it a day. You have to change not only your controls, but your context. This means new techniques, new tools, and new resources. It means security is code.
In our Cloud Leaders Denver 2018 keynote presentation, Andrew Plato—the founder and CEO of the oldest security intelligence company in the nation—will explore the inherent security of the cloud and how it can be combined with automation to truly transform your business.
Moving to the Cloud can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. With the right team of experts, who have been through countless migrations, you can make the move and not the mistakes.
In this webinar, attendees will hear from JHC Technologies, a leading Managed Services Provider that specializes in migrating enterprises and public sector organizations' data centers to the public cloud. Additionally, CloudCheckr will discuss tools to automate security and optimize cost once in the cloud.
Maintaining accountability across an ephemeral IaaS infrastructure can be a challenge for Finance and DevOps teams. With the proper tagging strategy and implementation, organizations can manage cloud costs around their EC2 instances and resources.
