Title: Security in the Cloud, how Cloud is Changing Security
Abstract: Do you know if your workloads are secure? Do you have the same security and compliance coverage across all of the cloud platforms and datacenters running your critical applications? Are you having to design your security framework each time you deploy to a new region or datacenter? Whether you’re working exclusively on Azure or with multiple cloud environments, there are certain things you should consider when moving assets to the public cloud. As with any cloud deployment, security is a top priority, and moving your workloads to the cloud doesn’t mean you’re not responsible for the security of your operating system, applications and data. Building on the security of the Azure infrastructure, this shared security responsibility starts with making sure your Azure environment is secure.
In this session, we will discuss step-by-step what you need to do to secure access at the administrative, application and network layers. We will review:
• The Azure Shared Security Model: What security you are responsible for to protect your content, application, systems and networks
• Best practices for how to protect your Azure environment from the latest threats
• Learn how traditional security approaches may have limitations in the cloud
• How to leverage security tools and services to meet your Azure security responsibilities
