Start Your Zero Trust Security Journey in the Cloud

Legacy, perimeter-centric security models have proven ineffective. They simply aren’t capable of safeguarding today’s mobile, agile, and hyperconnected workforce and business strategies.

So how can executives maintain the integrity and defense of enterprise data, applications, users, and devices in today’s intensifying threat landscape? A zero trust security model is necessary.

Leadership teams must embrace a “verify but never trust” principle to preserve the health of their networks. Adopting this architecture will enable the organization to evolve, responding to both threats and business processes alike, with confidence and agility.

  • Why a Zero Trust approach to security is imperative
  • How a Zero Trust reference architecture looks like in a cloud and hybrid environment
  • Three simple ways to start implementing Zero Trust in cloud and hybrid infrastructures

Cloud Security, The Next Five Years: Regulatory Balkanization

Amazon’s EC2 service is now a teenager, and today, the default question for most new applications is “Why shouldn’t I build this in the cloud?” And if we adhere to security and privacy by design principles and take advantage of all the controls available from cloud providers, we can achieve security that’s as good or better than what most organizations can achieve in their own infrastructure given resource constraints.

So, onward and upward, right? Yes, but: regulation will force (geographic) fragmentation. Our biggest challenges will revolve around ensuring that data follows the rules about where it can live and be used. This will drive cost and complexity for organizations working across regulatory boundaries.

In this session, we’ll look at the possible solutions to these complexities and their timelines.

From Spreadsheets to Streamlined: Automating the Third-Party Cloud Vendor Risk Lifecycle

Managing third-party cloud vendor risk before, during and after onboarding is a continuous effort under global privacy laws and security regulations. While outsourcing operations to vendors can alleviate business challenges, managing the associated risk with manual tools like spreadsheets is complex and time consuming. To streamline this process, organizations must put procedures in place to secure sufficient vendor guarantees and effectively work together during an audit, incident – or much more.

In this session, we’ll breakdown a six-step approach to automating third-party vendor risk management and explore helpful tips and real-world practical advice to automate third-party privacy and security risk programs.

How to Vulnerability Manage Ephemeral Compute

Much compute and storage is gone or going to the cloud. Well established best practices for security exist but not directly applicable anymore. Ephemeral instances escape classic security tooling, but there is potential for permanent damage. This presentation will walk through Amazon AWS and Qualys to give specific examples of the problems and how they can be addressed.


  • Show a website, how it’s hosted (multiple EC2 servers serving a simple web application; ElasticBeanstalk; dynamic scaling up and down)
  • How can we scan this:
    • Bake Cloud Agent into AMI
    • Configure EC2 connector to identify assets
    • Launch vulnerability scans against the servers with authentication
  • Vulnerabilities found:
    • Vulnerable Apache (VM)
    • Broken SSL configuration (SSL Labs / CertView)
    • World readable S3 Bucket
    • Instances built outside of AMI bake cycle (DB server)
  • Fix all the issues:
    • VM: update Apache.

Digitalisierung und Sicherheit: Zwei Seiten einer Medaille & Digitalisierung und Automatisierung: Wie lange braucht es SOC, RedTeams und Pen-Tester?

Digitalisierung und Sicherheit: Zwei Seiten einer Medaille

Die Digitalisierung von Geschäftsprozessen steht für viele Unternehmen ganz oben auf der Agenda und ist im globalen Wettbewerb unabdingbar. Die zahlreichen damit einhergehenden rein funktionalen Anforderungen und die damit verbundenen Veränderungen des Geschäftsumfeldes bringen viele Unternehmen bereits an ihre Belastungsgrenzen. In der Folge werden nicht-funktionale Anforderungen wie der sichere Betrieb und Schutz vor Angriffen oft nur unzureichend umgesetzt. Auch verfügen nur die wenigsten Unternehmen ausserhalb der Finanzindustrie über die notwendige Erfahrung im Umgang mit Informations-Sicherheit. Unvollständige oder missverstandene Anforderungen und «fundiertes Halbwissen» führen daher oftmals zu zwar teuren aber dennoch unzureichenden Sicherheitskonzepten. So sind ganzheitliche Sichtweisen und praktikable Lösungen gefordert, um die Digitalisierung erfolgreich zu gestalten.

Digitalisierung und Automatisierung: Wie lange braucht es SOC, RedTeams und Pen-Tester?

Mit der Digitalisierung kommt auch “machine learning” und Künstliche Intelligenz. Schon heute kann die schiere Datenmenge nur bewältigt werden, wenn konsequent automatisiert wird bei der Überwachung der Sicherheit. Doch wie sieht die Situation in den nächsten Jahren aus – automatisieren wir unsere eigenen Jobs weg und wird es SOC (security operation centers), RedTeams und Penetration-Tester noch brauchen?
