How to build trust, starting with identity

Historically, hub & spoke networks with rigid security boundaries have protected users and applications. In a cloud centric world, users can work anywhere with a wifi/4G connection and access applications in the cloud and physical datacenters. How do we protect users, applications and data from attack? This keynote will cover;

  • How to build trust based on identity.
  • How visibility is key to build a security policy.
  • How to apply a risk based policy to user application access.

Secure Application Migration to the Cloud

As organisations migrate applications to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), how do we ensure security and segmentation of users and data. This workshop will run through the challenges organisations face, and how to use a Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust Assessment (CARTA) model to embed security into the architecture.
A demonstration of application migration from physical DC to AWS & Azure will show how a multi-cloud approach can be achieved securely, without the need for point-to-point network connections.
