Migrating your IT infrastructure to the cloud changes the threat and vulnerability landscape and enables the use of a broad range of best practice security processes and tools. The presentation aims to enable the non-technical person to have a deeper understanding of cloud security and to know what questions to ask cloud providers, MSPs and professional services companies. Based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework security pillar the presentation covers the following topics:

  • Setting the context for cloud security.
  • The shared responsibility model.
  • AWS well architected security, IAM, detective controls, infrastructure protection, data protection, incident management.
  • Cloud vulnerabilities.
  • Cloud vs on prem security, the approach.
  • Why is cloud security different to on prem.
