Opening Speech with Johan Blom (Approx. 15 min)
Summary of day 1 and set the stage for Day 2.
Protect: Secure Application Infrastructure on AWS (Approx. 1 hour)
Both new and legacy applications are moving to the cloud, and it’s happening extremely fast. There are great opportunities to build secure application infrastructure with platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), a lot more secure than most on-premise deployments.
But your use of cloud platforms could as well turn into a disaster without the right security strategy in place. As a comparison, imagine what it would mean if your on-premise data center would be physically accessible to any attacker 24/7 (esentially admin console access to all your servers). Sounds a bit scary, doesn’t it?
In this session you’ll learn about some important general concepts in building secure and resilient application infrastructure in the cloud. We use Amazon AWS as a demo environment, but most of the concepts can be achieved using Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform as well. We will talk about automated provisioning, identity and access management (IAM), secure TLS, micro-segmentation, patch management, runtime application protection, monitoring/logging and a lot more.
