The recent breakfast seminar, Securing Your Data, Availability and Reputation in the Cloud, held on March 21, 2014, brought together more than 75 security and IT professionals and entrepreneurs for an engaging, interactive discussion on key security considerations in a cloud environment.
Thanks very much to panelists Cricket Lui (Chief Infrastructure Officer, Infoblox), Chris Wysopal (Co-Founder and CTO, Veracode), Nick Levay (CSO, Bit9), and Chris Ray (Chief Information Security Officers, Epsilon), who offered seasoned guidance and critical tips to minimize security risks in a cloud environment, such as how to evaluate and trust your AWS and the strength of next-generation firewalls, especially in the wake of increasing DDoS attacks.
For additional information on DDoS attacks and the destruction they can bring, panelist and security expert Cricket Lui’s InfoWorld DeepDive recent special report, “The Ultimate Guide to Preventing DNS-based DDoS Attacks,” provides a comprehensive look specifically at DDoS attacks. Take a look for additional information on how DDoS attacks exploit and target DNS infrastructure, how companies can protect themselves from such attacks, and what to do should your company become a target.
A full recap of the Securing Your Data, Availability and Reputation in the Cloud seminar is available on CIO TechTarget: “A Cloud First Strategy Call for Strong Security: Five Tips to Get There,” in an article by senior news writer Nicole Laskowski.
