2. Passion towards Information security + attendance in previous meet ups.

If you are new to the community, selection will be based on the answers to the survey questions asked during the registration process. Please answer these questions carefully.


Have you ever wondered how security is different ‘in the cloud’? How is Cloud Security and the “Cloud Native” approach different than a traditional data center? Where do you store your certificates? Your keys? Your connection strings? How can you see what’s going on with your resources? How do you patch? Where can you see your server configs other important information? How do you manage an security incident? How do you even know that you’re having an incident?

This workshop has 3 parts:
1) Group discussion of how cloud native security is different than traditional data centre security
2) Demo of Azure Security Centre
3) Audience members investigate issues and mitigate security issues, in Azure, as a group
