Privileged Access Management Challenges When Moving to the Cloud

The move to broad-based remote work has accelerated many organizations business requirements to move more infrastructure and services into the cloud. Experts agree that the top priority for cloud migration should be data security and privacy. However, recent studies discovered that 70% of organizations experienced a public cloud security incident in the last year. With 80% of organizations predicted to migrate toward cloud, hosting, and colocation services by 2025, new attack surfaces will arise and create greater security vulnerabilities. 

To fully benefit from rapid technological transformation, it is imperative that enterprises embrace strategies for safeguarding their infrastructure and services both during and after cloud migration. In this session, we will discuss common challenges and the tools and strategies IT and security leaders are finding most effective for managing a secure transformation to the cloud.

Why Don't Security Professionals Know More about Identity and Access Management?

Having recently found myself in a role dedicated to IAM, I quickly learned there was a gap in my knowledge. With 15 years of cybersecurity experience, it never occurred to me how little I understand about this domain. Entitlements, provisionables, and requestables are just part of an entirely new language I've been learning. Let us discuss why there is a gap in our knowledge and what we can do to overcome it.

Rise of Next-Gen Software Supply Chain Attacks

Legacy software supply chain "exploits", such as Struts incident at Equifax, prey on publicly disclosed open source vulnerabilities that are left unpatched in the wild. Conversely, next-generation software supply chain "attacks" are far more sinister because bad actors are no longer waiting for public vulnerability disclosures. Instead, they are actively injecting malicious code into open source projects that feed the global supply chain. 

Join this fireside chat with Ax Sharma, Senior Security Researcher, Sonatype and Michelle Dufty, Senior Vice President, Marketing Sonatype to: 

 1) Understand software supply chain attacks and their impact on the open-source ecosystem 

 2) Deep dive into prominent real-world examples of dependency confusion, typosquatting and brandjacking malware 

 3) Learn how your organization can proactively protect itself against software supply chain attacks

The Right Hybrid Cloud Strategy Enables Agility at Scale

In today's world, there's a common thread connecting almost every organization across all industries and regions: uncertainty. Change - often disruptive - is happening faster. Customer demands rise for a more convenient digital experience, security threats are growing as cloud-based cyberattacks increased by 630% and a complex, ever-changing web of regulations extends from country to country. So, how can businesses digitally transform with cloud, while also ensuring they have a secure environment where customers' data is not compromised? The answer is clear: with a secure and open hybrid cloud architecture. This next-generation cloud architecture magnifies the benefits of cloud while simplifying IT operations, data access, interoperability, security, and more. 

 Takeaways: 

  • Strategies to future-proof your IT architecture that unifies an enterprise's existing cloud environments and creates a bridge to tomorrow's infrastructure 
  • How to gain flexibility and efficiency, and create a path to building faster, securely, anywhere

Forging the Future:

We've demonstrated that we can be incredibly productive in multiple constructs - together - and apart; so, how do we make sure that we get the most of both? We have an opportunity to reimagine how we use the space we work in and optimize our workforce and that's an exciting place to be. Zoom offers innovation that never stops - so that you can implement hybrid work in the optimal construct for your organization, your customers, and your partners.
