Security at the speed of DevOps


Best practices for moving to the cloud

Organizations are rapidly adopting DevOps as they retool their IT infrastructure. The speed and agility it delivers enables them to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the marketplace. Far too often security is seen as an inhibitor — getting in the way of rapid delivery of new applications and the ability to scale infrastructure to meet business opportunity.

In this session, experts from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and CrowdStrike will outline how to quickly deploy and scale while retaining control and preserving compliance when using the cloud. You’ll learn how you can adopt a DevOps model without sacrificing security by using automated compliance policies, fine-grained controls, and configuration management techniques.

This webcast will cover these key topics and takeaways:

  • A review and discussion of the shared responsibility model to help you understand the tenets of security that’s “of” the cloud versus security “in” the cloud
  • Best practices in securing your cloud presence
  • Practical steps for how you should assess your infrastructure, management and compliance
