Dave Shackleford | SANS analyst, SANS institute; David Aiken | Solutions Architect, AWS Marketplace
As more organizations store sensitive data in the cloud, and as data protection regulations become more stringent, security personnel should consider developing a strategy to protect their assets in the AWS cloud. However, this poses many important questions, such as: How can I securely migrate data from on-premises storage volumes to AWS services, or from existing AWS services to new AWS services? What controls are needed? And what performance requirements must be met?
SANS analyst Dave Shackleford explores the controls that are critical to data security and how to scale on-premises data protection strategies to the cloud.
Attendees will learn:
- How to use data loss prevention, encryption, access controls, user behavior analytics, and data life cycle controls as integral parts of a data protection strategy
- Key steps in scaling data protection to the AWS cloud, and which AWS storage and database services can be used to establish data encryption capabilities
- Ways to minimize common risks from human error with a combination of AWS and third-party services, and how organizations are using both to secure data in AWS
