Shared Responsibility Best Practices for Securing Public Cloud Platforms with CrowdStrike and AWS


Attend our Public Cloud Security CrowdCast

Before the rise of cloud computing, enterprises could expect to be responsible for securing the systems in their data centers, their applications — everything. Because of the complexities of the threat landscape and organizational environments, security and DevSecOps teams have struggled to stay ahead.

Today, more and more organizations are migrating systems in part or wholly to the cloud, and cloud service providers are ready, willing and able to ease the security burden through the shared responsibility model. We welcome you to come learn the best practices for securing your cloud in this CrowdCast with CrowdStrike and AWS.

Attend this webcast to:

  • Understand the composition of cloud environments and the technologies that are driving adoption
  • Take a deep dive into the challenges of moving to the cloud and having a cloud infrastructure
  • Learn key best practices to secure your organization’s public cloud platforms
  • Find out how automation of DevSecOps processes and controls can help keep pace with the security you need
