Cyber Security - Thinking Like The Enemy - Peter Cochrane OBE

Online event

The Talk:

There is far more to cyber security than technology.

Every successful attack starts with human fallibility and failure.

The Dark Side is an integrated business venture on a global scale.

Operating as individually isolated organisations means we can only lose.

Integrating the information and resources across sectors and countries is essential.

The projected ‘business earnings of The Dark Side will be >5x the GDP of the UK by 2030.

The best practices of working securely on AWS

Online event

The Talk:

Cloud has been around for a relatively long time now, yet there doesn’t seem to be a huge community of purely security focused individuals working with it. My theory is that this is down to cloud security appearing to be so different to what people are used to working with. Let’s try and bust that myth.

Join me for a bird’s eye view of the most important security concepts on AWS, what the best practices are around them as well as what AWS can do to help make life easier. I hope that this talk makes some of you more comfortable exploring AWS in the future.

About Alex:

Alex Kearns is a consultant at Inawisdom in Ipswich delivering data and AI/ML solutions on AWS for a variety of customers. Prior to this he has worked for an early stage startup and BT in a security focused role. He has a firm belief that security best practices should underpin all workloads, especially those in public clouds such as AWS.
