When you’re operating in a cloud environment, access expands, responsibilities change, control shifts, and the speed of provisioning resources and applications increases—significantly affecting all aspects of IT security. Security must keep up with these demands without compromising on auditability, least privilege, and secure development practices while receiving the benefits of automation. In cloud environments, security must be built in with configuration management and infrastructure as code. This talk aims to piece all of it together while providing practical guidance (and examples) that will help your organization operate safely in this age of cloud computing.
Topics will include:
Building security in with infrastructure as code
Pipeline-friendly OS hardening
Vulnerability scanning considerations for building cloud applications
Migrating to the cloud with rapid deployments in mind
