Is my AWS Cloud secure?

Join us on April 11th to hear from a reformed security consultant on what you should be securing in AWS, and how you should be securing it.

We will cover the anatomy of a compromise using a real-life breach, how it happened and what you can do to prevent it. The discussion will include examples of different types of cyber attacks (SSH brute force attacks, Illicit crypto mining, IAM privilege escalations) and why some can be so challenging to detect, especially in the public cloud.

We will then dive into a product demo showing how you can automatically detect these indicators of compromise within your own cloud environments very quickly before they spur into something more brand damaging.

We will be raffling off a Pair of Bose Quiet Comfort headphones for one lucky attendee! - JUST REMEMBER YOUR BUSINESS CARD AND YOU ARE ELIGIBLE!!

Date: Thursday, April 11, 2019. Starting at 5:30 pm at the Barbara M. Donnellan Auditorium, Arlington Central Library.
