Automation & Security for the Cloud: An Enterprise & Carrier Channel Security Event
Hosted by Jim Hodges, Principal Analyst, Cloud & Security, Heavy Reading
PRODUCED BY LIGHT READING
AUTOMATION & SECURITY FOR THE CLOUD
The traditional information security model, which relies on people, processes and stand-alone technology, is no longer robust enough to meet the modern-day challenges associated with running carrier and enterprise applications in the cloud. Just as cloud technology and other innovations have enabled firms to make giant leaps in IT, new security approaches are necessary to fill the gap in protecting those businesses. While cloud security requirements have yet to be formally defined, without question, performance wise, the speed and analytical capabilities of the "machine" must be designed to optimally match the sophistication of modern-day threats. Accordingly, the realities of this brave new security world will rely heavily on automation and orchestration, dynamic policy control, machine learning, artificial intelligence and behavioral and predictive analytics.
Automation & Security for the Cloud: An Enterprise & Carrier Channel Security Event is designed to provide attendees a refined look at today's cloud landscape, its current vulnerabilities within the modern enterprise, the fast and organized nature of global threats and the new "machine" speed solutions stepping in to fill the gap. This includes not only reviewing the latest technologies and tactics to secure the cloud, but also frank discussion about what's working, what isn't and what needs to change.
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.
