Chasing Cloud Security Maturity Amid Constant Headwinds of Change

Presented by

Grant Asplund, Check Point Software Technologies; Patrick Pushor, Independent Cloud Security SME

About this talk

Covid and the push to accelerated ‘remote first’ strategies have forced organizations to leverage on-demand cloud infrastructure - often without the proper design, architecture and security strategy in place to scale safely. In addition Infrastructure as a service providers are innovating very quickly and building high value services for us to leverage in our application architectures. Lastly, we are challenged more than ever by a lack of mature cloud skill sets available to hire. All of these factors add up decisions with resources, identities, and access that put our most sensitive secrets at risk. As new and innovative cloud capabilities are introduced, so too are security innovations - both in technology and process. In this session, Grant Asplund, Growth Technologies Evangelist is joined by long-time industry and cloud subject matter expert, Patrick Pushor. Patrick has been deeply involved in cloud computing since 2008. He was the first North American employee for Dome9 Security in 2014 and today has more than a decade of hands-on cloud practitioner experience. Grant and Patrick will discuss the evolution of cloud security including headwinds, issues, challenges, and concerns companies can expect to be confronted with as they pursue reaching security maturity in the cloud.
