Bryan Orme, Principal, Information Assurance Services, GuidePoint Security

Organizations across the globe are rushing to move workloads into the public cloud. However, most organizations are not aware of the Shared Security Responsibility model or of the security challenges that can come with moving to the cloud. Additionally, many Information Security teams are not familiar with the native security capabilities available within AWS or the myriad of cloud security technologies in the marketplace to address the security challenges, and default to telling the business “No”. This presentation will focus on the AWS Shared Security Responsibility Model, some common security challenges when moving to the cloud, and some native and third party security technologies that can enable organizations to move to the public cloud in a secure manner.

4:00pm-4:45pm: How Distributed Data Protection is Enabling the Fearless Enterprise
Mike Rogers, VP of Sales & Derek Owen, Sales Engineer, Ionic Security

As countless advancements continue to disrupt today’s marketplace, no role on the executive team is evolving more quickly than that of the Chief Information Security Officer. In addition to their previous responsibilities, CISOs and IT executives are now expected to be the figurehead of innovation, while also playing a key role in evaluating their organization’s overall business strategy and driving value across teams. However, against this backdrop of expectations, cybersecurity and data breaches are transforming the future of business. With data acting as a living orgasm, it is constantly changing, growing, multiplying, and traveling out of reach and our control.

Mike Rogers and Derek Owen will be speaking about the retooling that is required to protect data in this ever changing environment.
