CLOUDSEC 2019

PICTURE THIS! See. Secure. Go Further.

Where are you on your Cloud journey? Are you ready for tomorrow’s security challenges?

Experts from all backgrounds come together at #CloudSec 2019 to give you and your team insights on the future of cloud security. Gain hands-on experience with tools and techniques from our #CloudSec Challenge. Leave with a clear vision for your organisation’s cloud strategy and security.

Picture an organisation that can prepare for, withstand, and recover from any cybersecurity threat —one that's so resilient that nothing can hinder its success. Picture how it can easily adapt to increasingly complex and shifting IT environments. Picture how it sees cybersecurity as a strategy, and how it has a clear vision of how ever-changing threats and risks should be managed.

Picture that organisation as your own.

The computing landscape continues to introduce challenges amidst exciting new technologies, hyper-connectivity, and benefits. Organisations need to see order in chaos, see things from a different perspective, and even step back to see the big picture. Because having visibility through the power of collective and connected intelligence helps them build cyber resilience, and allows them to go further and do more.

Welcome to CLOUDSEC 2019.

Security is often misunderstood and addressed in the last stages of a build. Operationally, it’s ignored until there is an emergency. In this talk, we review a few advanced security processes and discuss how to easily automate them using common tools in the Cloud. This approach helps you and your team increase the security of your build while reducing the overall operational requirement of security in your stack. Leave this dev chat with everything you need to start automating security.
