Proactive vs. Reactive - A Better Approach to Cloud Security
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony Corp, Anthem and the Office of Personnel Management experienced data breaches through malware and other targeted attacks. How will your business adapt to this shift in technology while keeping its security posture?
In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will take you into the evolving world of cybercrime and give you an insider's look into the tactics utilized by fast, well-funded and organized attackers. He will review real examples and case studies of recent breaches, and you will learn expert strategies for protecting your information in the cloud.
Before coming to Alert Logic he was the Manager of Cyber Security for Rackspace Hosting. Prior to Rackspace he has worked at several companies including Wells Fargo Bank, Applied Materials, Stanford Medical Center and The Netigy Corporation. He has been in the Information Technology field since 1993 with a focus on security as of 1999 where he started as a penetration tester and auditor. Research has been his primary focus since 2007.

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.
Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
