Cloud Security Summit
Date & Time
Thursday, October 28, 2021, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Roger Ofarril Chris Hughes

Is cloud security just another component of a well-developed modern cybersecurity strategy or is it the key driver of your strategy? As new waves of digital transformation follow waves of migration to remote work, getting cloud right is essential — but so is keeping it in balance with the rest of your priorities. From developing and delivering a secure cloud or multi-cloud ecosystem, to evaluating your existing cloud environment for vulnerabilities, to the next wave of cloud security standards, this Summit is designed to prepare your organization to defend against the ever-growing threats and ever-changing compliance requirements in the cloud. Presentations will include:


9:00am - 10:30 am

Trial by Fire: Practical Security on AWS, with Roger Ofarril, FRBC

If you have been thrown into the burning fire of AWS security and need some quick-hit ideas, this is for you. In this presentation, we will explore how AWS native security tools can help us react when things go wrong in our cloud presence. We will cover the basics of several native security tools and then go hands-on to show how we move from detection to remediation. We explore a few use cases of typical threats and how they can be sopped. Participants will also learn how search logs and answer key questions essential for incident response purposes.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand the difference between the top AWS security tools.
  • Understand how to triage alerts on common cloud security threats.
  • Learn how to quickly search through logs and answer key questions.
