[Executive Briefing] Avoiding a Cloud Security Collision With Policy-Based Automation


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title


Tuesday, September 7, 2021
3 p.m. ET

Shift security left, right, up and down to align teams, reduce risk and empower developers to move faster in the cloud. As the scale and complexity of cloud environments grow, so do the risks and the costs of addressing them. AWS, Azure and Google Cloud are fundamentally different from the data center in how they work and how we use them—and they require thinking differently to keep them secure because hackers are thinking differently about how to exploit them.

In this session, Alan Shimel (Security Boulevard and DevOps.com) brings together Josh Stella (CEO, Fugue) and Matt Howard (EVP, Sonatype) to explore the convergence of development, ops and security, and why this represents the first-ever opportunity to align all cloud stakeholders with policy automation up and down the stack—and left and right across the SDLC.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Attendees will learn how to avoid a messy collision of cloud developers, operations and security—and achieve alignment instead.
  2. Discover where teams get cloud security wrong and why this becomes the rate-limiting factor for speed and agility in the cloud.
  3. Why IT security policy automation must happen vertically up and down the stack and horizontally across the software development life cycle.

This session will provide valuable insights to help you think more critically about the security of your unique cloud use case, empower your teams to move faster in the cloud than ever before and reduce risk along the way.
