A Heterogeneous Cloud Approach - Right or Wrong

If your organization is anything like the majority of modern enterprises and agencies out there, you're probably using some combination of physical, virtual, private cloud, and public cloud computing. A heterogeneous approach like this can significantly improve the affordability and efficiency for your IT resource use, but it also complicates your cybersecurity posture if your toolset can't keep up.

Got AWS and Azure? Secure Your Multicloud Identity-First

Most midsize and large organizations will be adopting a multi and/or hybrid cloud strategy this year. Protecting a cloud infrastructure of that scope needs to be a priority - and an identity-first approach is essential. 

Why? Gartner foresees that 75% of cloud security breaches will result from inadequate management of identities, access, and privileges by 2023. For perspective, note that AWS alone currently has over 200 fully featured services and some 10,000 total permissions. The challenge is compounded by the different ways that each public cloud manages permissions and privileges. 

Join Ermetic's Garrett Bechler, Senior Director of Worldwide Sales Engineering, for a useful look at how AWS and Azure handle identities, permissions and resources and manage identities and privileges risk. We will cover:

- Azure's RBAC vs AWS's IAM roles and policies

- Identity first strategies for enforcing least privilege

- Governing access and protecting sensitive resources

- Using automation and analytics to mitigate risks across clouds

Securing Your Organization by Protecting the Human

The way we communicate is changing rapidly. In new cloud communication apps, your employees are collaborating on key business initiatives and sending sensitive information in messages. And, the number of communication platforms are expanding faster than the security that is implemented to protect them. These changes in technology don't change the fact that humans remain the main vulnerability in any organization. Last year, 85% of breaches involved the human element, according to the Verizon DBIR.

So, how do you measure the human attack surface and measure the risk associated with people and human interactions?

Otavio Freire, CTO and co-founder of SafeGuard Cyber, will share details on the types of attacks targeting cloud communications infrastructure and how to secure the human attack surface. 

Attendees will learn:

  • How vulnerable cloud communications apps are to insider threat, data loss, and even ransomware
  • How to maximize situational awareness to detect and respond to risk in cloud communication
  • How a human-centric security model sets organizations up for success to adapt with changing business conditions and employee behavior
