Moving to the Cloud with a Secure Cyber Foundation

Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Time: 2 p.m. EST
Duration: 1 hour
Accreditation: Training Certificate for 1 CPE*
Cost: No Fee


Moving the government’s mission-critical compute resources to commercial clouds is like commercial rocketry. It may be getting more common but it’s not getting any easier. For agencies, the cloud imperative and the cloud challenge continue to roll forward.
In particular, cybersecurity is a moving target when it comes to cloud deployments. If security on an agency’s own networks and in its data centers isn’t adequate, it’s unlikely top-notch security will occur in the cloud. Therefore, to have high assurance of successful cloud implementations, agencies must constantly re-evaluate their security foundations.

This panel will investigate security analysis in the context of moving to the cloud.

Learning Objectives
  • Explore common “failed foundations” of cybersecurity rooted in the internet itself, such as authentication and unsecured DNS
  • Discuss how techniques such as agile segmentation and more granular access controls can shore up security
  • Identify the latest strategies for insider and activist threats
  • Examine agile recovery and regeneration of applications and data
