Keeping It Simple - Breaking Down Cloud Misconfigurations

Monitoring, alerting, immutable configurations are simple strategies that lead to security success. But why are we our own worst enemy? It's time to look for ways to simplify rather than complicate the organization's cloud security strategies. 

Join this Virtual Town Hall to dig in deeper on:

  • The persistent issues of insecure configurations such as IAM, alerting, monitoring logging and encryption
  • Misconfigurations that are consistently exploited in the real world
  • The why AND how to addressing all of the above
