Using public clouds for enterprise datacenters is now mainstream; the advantages are significant and the gained agility undisputable. However, the number of services and options being offered is daunting. And, with these choices come consequences; one misconfiguration can put your entire organization at risk…or worse.
Another reality you will face as you scale is the challenge of using a ‘one-size-fits-all’ interface. Imagine scrolling through lists of assets when the numbers are in the hundreds or even thousands. Just imagine trying to find a misconfigured or exposed S3 bucket when you have thousands; it’s finding a needle in a stack of needles.
And, if you’re like most enterprises, you have a resource gap and don’t have the experienced, trained security professionals maintaining your cloud environment(s). This gap exacerbates risks. The cloud environments available today are extremely comprehensive and powerful, but in unskilled hands, one fat-finger can have dire consequences. And, as you implement ephemeral cloud-native services like Lambda functions and other cloud-native platform components, new challenges will arise when conducting threat-detection and attribution.
In this session you’ll see your future and what to expect managing your public cloud-based datacenter. You’ll learn why Gartner says, “Through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” We will highlight the top challenges you will face and show you what you should prepare for before you scale. We will also detail recommended best practices for securing and maintaining compliance in your public cloud data center.
