Consensus suggests that moving to a public cloud provides less control over data. If true, moving to multiple public clouds should provide even less control while simultaneously exposing applications and data to amplified attack surfaces. So, is there a better way around this?
This one-and-a-half day conference will focus on identity management and access control in multi-clouds to mitigate insider threats and return control back to owners of applications and data. Emphasis will be placed on emerging concepts such as zero-trust architecture where gaining entry through a firewall or having an IP address does not provide additional privileges. The workshop will address attacks by implementing mutual TLS, secure service discovery, traffic encryption between services, and access control at the client, service, and data level through what is referred to as a “service mesh architecture.” Service mesh architectures originated to benefit the operational infrastructure of sophisticated cloud providers but are now becoming mainstream through the availability of tool sets and open-source SDKs that streamline and eliminate much of the complexity of their deployment.
The conference program will feature experts on service mesh architectures, identity, and access control in the modern-day cloud architecture and address the following themes:
- Mitigating insider threat
- Service mesh use cases, tools, analysis, and deployment experience
- Enforcing next-generation attribute-based access controls in the multi-cloud
Tutorials, demonstrations, and vendor displays will offer attendees the opportunity to gain insights into these emerging technologies and connect with tool and integration experts.
Entrepreneurs, students, and cybersecurity professionals in particular, are encouraged to attend!
