The Cloud and You: Cybersecurity in the Cloud

Wednesday, July 31st

Grand C

About the Session

The cloud has revolutionized the scale and security of physical security operations, reducing maintenance and provisioning time and redirecting those efforts to the actual practice of security; however, even with the major cloud service providers ramping up security and implementing world class cybersecurity procedures, these back-end practices do not always translate to security on endpoint applications, as standards and APIs must be configured securely by customers. This session will take attendees through the recommended on-premises procedures of deploying a security application securely on the major cloud services.

In this session, attendees will learn how to:

  • Explore the NIST framework and how it can be applied to complex systems and how the uses of this framework can reduce the concerns of deploying systems, both internally and in the cloud
  • Differentiate between the major cloud service providers: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. This understanding will also include how basic cybersecurity principles are covered and managed within each environment.
  • Examine monitoring, multi factor authentication, software maintenance, upgrades, and deployments in a cloud environment
