This talk examines the differences between traditional (bare metal) and cloud security, and why it can be easier and more difficult to secure the cloud. We’ll discuss the traditional security appliance model, and why it doesn’t work well in the cloud, as well as the vast alternatives to that more traditional model. We’ll discuss why it’s impossible to be 100% secure, and why every company will be breached, that it’s only a matter of time. And,why the effort to secure your environment is not just cost, but can become a business benefit, and how you can turn a security breach into a great PR opportunity. Finally, you’ll walk away with three concrete steps to take to get you started securing your cloud.
