Cloud Compliance at Scale—So you can go skiing:
Cloud computing is a dynamic and constantly changing environment. An environment that was compliant Monday morning might be non-compliant Monday afternoon. How do you maintain compliance at scale in a dynamic cloud environment that has dozens of accounts, thousands of systems, dozens of teams, and resources that are created and destroyed hour by hour? More importantly, how can you do all that and still have enough time leftover to take a skiing holiday to France? The trick is automation. Use the cloud to secure the cloud, monitor the cloud, and respond automatically in real-time to compliance variance. In this session Charles will show how to use open source automation tools and cloud-native services to monitor, detect, alert and remediate changes. When you implement Compliance Configuration as Code, your cloud remains compliant even while you’re on the slopes.
Charles Roberts is a security consultant with AWS Professional Services, based in London. His background is in IT security for small and large enterprises and he helps customers keep their clouds secure with automation and secure configuration. Over the last two years he has helped several large enterprises in different industries secure their clouds by deploying open source tools like Cloud Custodian and Prowler, as well as AWS-specific technology. His interest in automation is directly proportional to his interest in making time for skiing holidays.
Working in partnership with the National Cyber Security Centres Cyber Schools Hub initiative and CyNam, Hub8 are proud to be hosting the first school event of its kind.
