Many companies have gone "To the Cloud!" and many more are planning to move services into the cloud. This shift is typically focused on associated cost savings and reduced overhead. The question remains though: how does the cloud impact security?
This session covers key cloud security concepts, some common hybrid cloud scenarios, and the potential security issues with leveraging cloud services. Also explored are ways to avoid common pitfalls, and how to retain insight into cloud-based user (and potential attacker) activity.
Though the focus is primarily on Microsoft Office 365 and Azure, Amazon and Google's cloud services are noted as well.
The session will be held by Sean Metcalf. Sean is founder and principal consultant at Trimarc, a consulting company which focuses on improving enterprise Active Directory security.
