Five Cloud Security “Must-Dos” at RSA Conference 2017

Cloud security professionals are in for a treat at RSA Conference 2017. There is an enhanced and increased focus on cloud this year, from sessions to the Cloud Security Alliance’s cloud-focused event. Here are five cloud security “must dos” while you’re at RSA.
1. From Vision to Reality: Delivering Emerging Cyber-Technologies Effectively, Gretchen Myers, Lead, Security Strategy and Technologies, Chevron. Balancing deployment of emerging technologies with legacy ecosystems is a challenge when IT is constantly bombarded with new threats, regulations and the seemingly endless “fix it now” issues of cybersecurity. Chevron’s road to cybersecurity maturity included developing a flexible approach to build a strong foundation based on long-term research with new agility to adapt to emerging threats. This session will include a case study on implementing and making CASB operational.

 Cyber, an Evolving Ecosystem: Creating the Road for Tomorrow’s Smart Cities. Gary Hayslip, Deputy Director, Chief Information Security Officer, City of San Diego. Today, cities across the globe are implementing ISO 37150 and looking to a future where they will have populations three to five times larger than today. This will require cities to plan decades in advance on how to provide services through future technologies. Here, in the City of San Diego, we are laying the groundwork, from a cybersecurity perspective, on how to manage this future risk.
3. Cloud-First Ransomware: A Technical Analysis, Krishna Narayanaswamy, Chief Scientist and Ravi Balupari, Director of Threat Research, Netskope. Cloud services have emerged as the preferred attack vector of some of the most dangerous and innovative cloud malware exploits of the past six months. Why?  Because many organizations don’t inspect their cloud SSL traffic for a malware and the same functionalities of the cloud dramatically increase productivity (sync, share, collaborate, etc) also provide ransomware developers with a perfect medium for faster delivery of malware payloads to more targets. Delivered at CSA Congress.
