Security Teams & Tech in a Cloud World

Security in the cloud is fundamentally different. Not so much due to the technology--though there's plenty of differences there--but more with respect to the way that security is applied and how it's run.

Over the past few years, we've seen a radical shift in how development and operational teams work together. Security teams have been left out in the cold and are still viewed as the "No" team.

It doesn't have to be that way.

Cloud technologies have enabled new work flows and models for businesses and other is no different. We just have to wake up and take advantage of the new ecosystem.

When security teams embrace change, the boundaries start to dissolve and security can finally be built in instead of bolted on.

In this session, we'll look at some of the challenges involved in this shift, how it impacts your teams, your skill set, and how a modern approach to defence will improve your security posture.
