How Public Cloud Changes Cybersecurity for the Better

While many basic security controls are enduring, public cloud (AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud) has introduced a wave of new practices, tactics, and forms of automation to implement those controls. In total, these capabilities are going to make cloud security better than on-premise methods. The elasticity and scale of public cloud has led to more integrations of cybersecurity in the creation of computing assets. The abundant data available has led to new forms of automated configuration and monitoring for breaches. Software-defined everything and APIs have given cybersecurity systems a wider range of power and opened the way for declarative methods of implementing security in the cloud. In this webinar, Dan Woods, Principal Analyst at Early Adopter Research, and Sandy Bird, CTO of Sonrai Security, will look at how public cloud is changing cybersecurity for the better and the long term impact of these new capabilities. One key impact is that soon on-prem data centers will be recognized as less secure than cloud data centers.

Key questions:

  • What are the core differences between cloud security and on-premise methods?
  • How has abundant data opened up new possibilities for monitoring and automation?
  • What is the impact of software-defined infrastructure?
  • Why is identity central to security in public cloud?
  • How has public cloud security broken new ground in managing complexity?
  • What new forms of automation of security are emerging in the cloud?
  • Are AI and ML being implemented faster in the cloud?
