Application and Cloud Security Overview

Presented by

Jamie Yu (Cisco)

About this talk

Security is at the very top of the list of priorities for corporate leaders, and for a good reason. Data breaches have never been so numerous or severe. There are many areas of digital services that need to be defended, but none are more important than the applications and data in the cloud. Although application layer defense is not always well understood, web application attacks remain the most frequent cause of confirmed breaches. As more business workflows move into third-party cloud services, corporate data is no longer contained within traditional corporate network boundaries. Applications have become the new frontier and security can be incorporated into multiple stages of the software development lifecycle to mitigate application vulnerabilities. In this talk with WiCyS Strategic Partner, Cisco, viewers will be given an overview of the application and cloud security with topics in Software Development Lifecycle, threat modeling, secure coding practices, common application vulnerabilities, and countermeasures. Organizations must take the threat of insecure web applications seriously and take a risk-based approach to protect data in the cloud. The webinar will conclude with considerations and guidelines related to cloud security.
