Shared Responsibility and Secure Cloud Configuration
The transition to the cloud is full of blind spots and there are always unforeseen obstacles. This course will give a comprehensive overview on how to safely and securely transition into the cloud. In this session, we will dive into the shared responsibility model that exists within the world of cloud service providers (CSPs). While the service providers take over much of the responsibility traditionally owned by IT teams, they also introduce new responsibilities that may create blind spots. We’ll look at how the CIS Benchmarks for CSPs can help guide you toward a secure cloud computing environment; but, we’ll also look at the underlying cost of manually maintaining these new controls. How can your IT team leverage automated policy audits and result remediation to decrease the cost of investment and fully benefit from the reduced cost of ownership commonly associated with the transition to the cloud?
An attendee will learn:

What role does compliance play in cloud transition?
What is the safest and more secure way to transition to the cloud?
How to save time and money for your IT team when going through cloud transition.
