On-demand Webinar: Prioritizing security operations in the AWS cloud

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the SANS Institute* help security practitioners understand their options across key cybersecurity domains using a familiar operational language: The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF).

In this on-demand webinar, SANS Director of Emerging Technologies John Pescatore will show how to use the NIST CSF to make the leap to securing infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) and hybrid cloud implementations by selecting and integrating the most effective and efficient security services, including both native cloud security services and third-party controls.

About this On-demand Webinar: 

This webinar provides practical education to help you quickly identify the right use cases to prioritize for cloud security operations, as well as determine which specific technologies are needed to execute your security mission in the AWS cloud. In addition, the webinar includes SANS-led training on key cloud security operations, and how they align with the NIST CSF core to help you employ automated, innovative, and secure solutions to strengthen your cybersecurity posture.

Attendees will learn:

  • What is different about security for cloud workloads
  • Why using a framework to organize efforts is effective
  • How to implement controls at the perimeter, host and data boundaries
  • What best practices organizations should implement
  • How to deploy secure IAAS and hybrid cloud implementations

About the presenter: 

SANS John Pescatore joined SANS as director of emerging technologies in January 2013 after more than 13 years as lead security analyst for Gartner, running consulting groups at Trusted Information Systems and Entrust, 11 years with GTE, and service with both the National Security Agency, where he designed secure voice systems, and the U.S. Secret Service, where he developed secure communications and voice systems “and the occasional ballistic armor installation.” John has testified before Congress about cybersecurity, was named one of the 15 most-influential people in security in 2008 and is an NSA-certified cryptologic engineer.


About the SANS Institute:

The SANS Institute was established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education organization. Its programs now reach more than 165,000 security professionals around the world—from auditors and network administrators, to chief information security officers—sharing the lessons they learn and jointly finding solutions to the challenges they face.
