Automation & Security for the Cloud: An Enterprise & Carrier Channel Security Event

Hosted by Jim Hodges, Principal Analyst, Cloud & Security, Heavy Reading



Specific sessions and topics to be addressed include:

Closing the Skills Gap

Mounting security threats require more people to defend the network. Where can we find them, and how can we use automation, AI and machine learning as a force multiplier?


Security doesn’t have to be a barrier to productivity. By combining security and operations, enterprises and service providers can have security and agility too

Compounding the Problem: The Internet of Things:

Smart factories, industrial equipment, jet engines, locomotives, medical equipment and smart homes will add millions of devices to an already complicated security problem. How hairy will it get, and how can security pros keep up?

AI & Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are emerging as powerful tools to help automate configuration and predict problems before they come up. How much help will they be?


What security threats and tools are emerging now? What’s coming in the future? What have we learned?

Who should attend

In this focused event, enterprise and service provider executives will engage in specific presentations and discussions aimed to explore the need for and application of automation in securing the cloud and modern architectures.
