  • Defend Your Clouds: Make Your IT Team Your Strongest Security Asset Sep 23 2019 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeff Valentine, CloudCheckr Chief Product Officer, Brian Calkin, CIS Chief Technology Officer
    The more users gain access to a company’s cloud environments, the more important it becomes to track what each user is doing, what they’re spending, and what data they’re accessing. But managing accounts—and their restrictions—for multiple users across multiple cloud platforms can turn into a nightmare.

    This lack of insight puts large-scale enterprises that manage hundreds of accounts at risk of data breaches and audit failures. Luckily, total visibility across multiple cloud infrastructures is possible when an IT team is armed with the right set of tools and an understanding of effective cloud management.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn how to improve their security posture and educate IT teams on managing cloud governance with providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Join Jeff Valentine, CloudCheckr's Chief Product Officer, and Brian Calkin, CIS' Chief Technology Officer, as they discuss Identity and Access Management (IAM), “least privilege”, cloud security best practices, and automating IT audits.
  • Building a Cloud Center of Excellence Using the AWS Well-Architected Framework Sep 18 2019 1:00 pm UTC 27 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Director
    The Public Cloud may be new to many enterprises, but it has been around long enough for Best Practices to have been established. As organisations migrate to the cloud, they do not have to start from scratch. They can leverage policies and frameworks established by cloud leaders and avoid repeating the mistakes of the early adopters. It is also important to get buy-in from different departments, so establishing a Cloud Center of Excellence is highly recommended.

    Attendees of this CloudCheckr webinar will learn what a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is and who should participate in one. They will also understand the pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF) and discover how CloudCheckr can help establish both a CCoE and WAF.
  • How to Achieve Cloud Compliance and Give Your Business a Competitive Edge Recorded: Sep 12 2019 46 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Gary Derheim, PTP VP Managed Services & Marketing
    Learn how to make your cloud business stand out. Achieving compliance and certifications in the cloud is a clear distinction with buyers and gives your company an edge on the competition. But compiling years of historical data and reports, as well as aligning various internal teams isn’t easy.

    One of the most stringent industries dealing with sensitive data is healthcare. Today, most of the healthcare industry will only work with HITRUST-certified and HIPAA-compliant vendors. To make matters more urgent, Gartner analysts predict the majority of healthcare providers will follow suit within two years.

    There’s still time to achieve early compliance and separate your business from the rest. In this compliance mapping webinar, CloudCheckr cloud management platform (CMP) and PTP, an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, will walk you through the steps to achieving total compliance. This session covers HIPAA, NIST 800-53 security framework, and FedRAMP, among others. Learn how a real customer, on their pursuit of a HITRUST audit, identified areas they needed to remediate, as well as how they managed crucial reporting that provided critical to the audit.

    Viewers are encouraged to participate in a live Q&A at the end of the webinar.

  • Build and Manage a Highly Secure Cloud Environment on AWS Recorded: Aug 1 2019 46 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Patrick Hannah, CloudHesive Chief Technology Officer
    Cloud-based enterprise data can be a magnet for malicious security threats, from attackers both within and outside organizations. Yet, leading cloud providers, like Amazon Web Services (AWS), make it clear they are not fully responsible for maintaining your organization’s cloud security and compliance. Companies that adopt cloud must understand this Shared Responsibility Model and close the data security loop themselves.

    Join our free webinar with CloudHesive, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, to learn how to build a highly secure cloud environment on AWS. Our experts, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Todd Bernhard, and CloudHesive Chief Technology Officer Patrick Hannah will also discuss SecOps strategies for maintaining a secure infrastructure.
  • How to Deliver on the Promise of AWS and Azure Cloud Cost Savings Recorded: Jul 25 2019 44 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Ashley Tarver, Cloudera Cloud Expert
    In the next three years, Gartner predicts the market size and growth of the cloud services industry at nearly three times the growth of overall IT services. With leading cloud providers, like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, creating workloads and purchasing instances is easy. However, managing resource costs in your new, growing cloud infrastructure can quickly become difficult and time-consuming.

    This free webinar first dives into common post-migration challenges and the reasons businesses overspend on the cloud. Guest host Ashley Tarver, from Cloudera, will join CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Todd Bernhard, to discuss business solutions for delivering on the promise of AWS and Azure cloud cost savings.

  • Cloud Pricing and Cost Optimisation: How to Avoid Unexpected AWS Fees Recorded: Jul 17 2019 59 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Sebastian Straub, N2WS/Veeam AWS Expert & System Engineer
    Since the adoption of public cloud services, IT infrastructures have become dynamic and complex environments. Now, users can spin up new cloud resources in seconds, and make snap decisions on instance types, storage types, and payment mechanisms. And while scalable and reliable, these new processes present a challenge. Individuals can mistakenly enable services that result in huge surprise AWS bills, or forget about an oversised Azure or AWS instance and end up paying for it month after month.

    Cloud cost optimisation is the process of adjusting your monthly cloud usage based on a set of cost-saving best practices. Some of these best practices include rightsising instances to scale, and eliminating underused resources.

    Gerry Miller, Founder and CEO, Cloudticity and Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, CloudCheckr
    Achieving cloud compliance in a given industry requires a thorough, risk-based approach. And it's possible with the right strategy. It is important to be aware—and cautious—of the way data protection laws vary between states, countries, and government bodies.

    In healthcare, HITRUST and HIPAA cloud compliance is highly desirable as most payers will only work with HITRUST certified vendors today. Analysts predict the majority of providers will follow suit within two years. Earning certifications like HIPAA Compliance on Amazon Web Service (AWS) can give your organization a competitive edge.

  • Live Tutorial: Stay Secure and Compliant in the Cloud with CloudCheckr Recorded: Jun 6 2019 33 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    Unlike in the Data Center, where an enterprise had complete responsibility for security, the Cloud is different. There is a Shared Responsibility Model. Cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud take responsibility for items under their control, but customers must secure their data and applications. Fortunately, there are hundreds of Best Practice Checks provided by CloudCheckr, that can help automate this. Additionally, those checks are mapped to compliance standards and CloudCheckr's Total Compliance scores an organization according to 35 distinct regulations including CIS, HIPAA, PCI DSS, NIST and more.

    Just because an enterprise achieves a level of compliance, that doesn't guarantee it will stay there. CloucCheckr's Change Monitoring, combined with Custom Alerts, can help keep a cloud secure. Attendees will learn how CloudCheckr's 550+ Best Practice Checks can help, including automation via Fix Now, Always Fix and Request Fix.

    CloudCheckr is a robust Cloud Management Platform that, in addition to Security & Compliance, delivers Cost Optimization, Automation, and Invoicing capabilities. Look for our other tutorials on those topics.

  • Live Tutorial: Optimize Cloud Costs with CloudCheckr Recorded: May 23 2019 23 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    The promise of Cloud Computing is ideal... pay for what you use, and not a penny more. The reality is that you pay for what you order, whether you use it or not. Gartner estimates that enterprises overspend on the cloud by as much as 70%. Many times, they use Data Center mentality in the cloud, or they don't take advantage of long-term commitment discounts, or they have users who turn on services and forget about them.

    In this live tutorial, we will demonstrate how CloudCheckr can help reduce costs, often by 30% or more, by identifying idle, unused and unattached resources and through Right Sizing and purchase recommendations for reserved instances.
