1:30 – 2:00 pm Registration & Coffee
2:00 – 2:45 pm Martin Suess, Security Engineer at Google

Everyone is moving their workloads into one or the other cloud or is at least considering it
I walk through the different “levels” of migrations and attempt to provide a comprehensive and cloud provider independent overview of the relevant security aspects to consider. In particular:

  • why a lift and shift approach should only be the first step
  • what changes and challenges a “true” cloud approach brings
2:45 – 3:30 pm Borna Cisar, Head of Cloud Security at Avantec AG

MYTHBUSTERS – Cloud Security Edition (Roundtable)
We’ll explore the limits of cloud-native security solutions, offered by the cloud providers. The question is how to close those gaps and meet your requirements, especially in multi- and hybrid cloud environments.

We’ll talk about network and application visibility, continuous compliance and other API-based approaches. And in addition we’ll discuss the merits of some of those methods in an interactive manner.

3:30 – 4:15 pm Break
4:15 – 5:15 pm Workshop I
by Antonio Barresi, Mitgründer und CEO xorlab AG – a spin-off company of ETH Zurich

Evaluating Defense Capabilities of Email Cloud Services
In the course of Cloud adoption, many companies are migrating to services like Office 365 and, in this context, are reevaluating their email security. In this workshop, we will look at the features, strengths and weaknesses of email cloud services and at resulting security implications. We will provide a simple framework for deciding if the cloud service provides enough security, when extending defenses makes sense and when it does not.

5:15 – 6:15 pm Workshop II
by Daniel Michel, Security Consultant and Michael Hess, Penetration Tester at Redguard AG

Auditing cloud environments based on shared responsibilities
Penetration testing a cloud deployment is no easy task due to its shared responsibility model. During this workshop we will analyze the impact of shared responsibilities in a cloud environment and outline its common pitfalls.

Further you will learn about an efficient approach to audit cloud infrastructure and benefit from practical guidance based on our experiences of penetration testing various cloud environments and solutions.

6:15 – open end Apéro Riche and Networking (therefore reserve as well the evening!)
The speakers will be onsite for Q&A.
