Secure Your Journey to the Cloud

Keith Loi, Systems Engineering Manager, Palo Alto Networks

Synopsis:
In the past, you had users with managed devices, sitting at their desk, and accessing applications in the internal data center. That’s no longer the case as your business isn't neatly contained in one building. Location plays an important factor on what you need to protect, and how you do it. Your business is operating in more locations than ever before, driving up the complexity and security requirements.

The security paradigm has become very difficult, because organizations need a architecture that is flexible (in both networking and security) to face the challenges of lack of visibility,  Fragmentation of tools, and Non-agile operations.

When journeying to the cloud, Palo Alto Networks recommend that organizations consider 7 key aspects including Cloud-enabled mobile workforce, Cloud-connected branch, Zero trust cloud security, Cloud governance and compliance, Cloud data protection, Cloud threat protection, and Secure DevOps.

12:20 - 12:55

Murphy Li, Senior System Consultant, ACW Distribution (Hong Kong) Limited on behalf of Sophos Hong Kong Company Ltd

Synopsis:

Cybercriminals have been quick to exploit public cloud security gaps, resulting in major data breaches as well as CPU hijacking. Learn from our expert the 7 security best practices to follow when using Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).  You will understand on how public cloud security differs from traditional on-premises protection, what you are (and are not) responsible for when using AWS, Azure, and GCP, and the 7 practical steps that will help you stay secure and compliant.

The New Hybrid Multicloud Experience is Here - Your Clouds at Your Command

Kelvin Leung, Senior Manager, Field Technology & Solutions, NetApp

Synopsis:

For a true hybrid multicloud, the consumption experience is low-friction, self-service, automated and delivers a consistent experience across public and private clouds. Along with the ability to consume services across a choice of private and public cloud resources, customers must be able to consolidate enterprise workloads without performance impact, deploy from a private cloud platform with service catalogs, accelerate VDI environments and support containerized applications and DevOps processes. With a hybrid cloud infrastructure, NetApp delivers a user experience that transcends location, where a private cloud essentially becomes another resource just like the biggest public clouds.

14:25 - 14:45

The Anatomy of a Data Breach

Farnder Tan, Regional Director, Greater China, SailPoint Technologies

Synopsis:

With the ever increasing proliferation of cloud based apps or ‘Shadow IT’ and the demand on ‘access anywhere, anytime’, organisations have recognized that it’s no longer sufficient to focus security efforts on the traditional network with firewalls or VPN’s for access. Today’s digital ecosystem has reached the intersection of people, applications and data where identity is the perimeter. Organizations are adopting Identity Based Security easier than ever before with IdentityNow, the industry’s only, innovative, easy to use and complete IGA SaaS Platform, built on SailPoint’s pioneering strengths in Identity Governance and Administration.
