Azure Cloud Security Workshop

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

Demo will include:
• Complete Azure Security Centre walkthrough
• Policy and compliance, including subscription coverage
• Resource Security Hygiene
• Azure Security Centre Recommendations (mitigation of one or more items, dependent on time)
• Threat Protection, Alerts and Logging
• Applying System Updates
• Key Vault
