Just recently organizations started moving secure applications and workloads to the public cloud. In this presentation, we will focus on one enterprises' journey to the public cloud. How we built and secured our very large and scalable public cloud environment, and the cutting edge tools used. Attendees will come away with: • A blueprint for building in the public cloud, that is not only secure but allows for rapid delivery of business value. • An understanding of the technical team make-up that delivered this secure and compliant public cloud environment in under 8 months. • How to leverage de-centralized control to enable autonomy and delivery of application teams. Title: How to Kickstart Public Cloud Security and Compliance Speaker: Dan Hubbard, Chief Product Officer at Lacework https://www.linkedin.com/in/dan-hubbard-59b9709 Public cloud security and compliance is overwhelming given the lack of visibility and monitoring security teams have over their assets in the cloud.
