InformationWeek: Leveraging Infrastructure as Code to Streamline Security and Operations (Aug. 3rd)
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Managing risk in short DevOps cycles is a common struggle for cloud native organizations, and the constant stream of breach announcements provides evidence that success is not easy.

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Find out how IaC is a key tool helping DevOps teams accelerate delivery, and faster deliveries often complicate security processes

  • Discover how IaC holds the key to accelerating security by providing the context necessary to understand which findings represent the most critical exploitable risks

  • Learn how by embracing IaC, modern security tools can deliver highly relevant, actionable findings even in early development phases and within automated DevOps processes where problems are easiest to fix and minimize remediation cost

Enterprise security professionals must deal with all levels of data protection, from insider threats to attacks from state actors.

In this webinar, our experts will discuss the multitude of ways that criminals are trying to get at your systems through the Web, including network, server, and device level connections.

We'll outline some of the tools and techniques for developing a sound security strategy. Some of the simplest approaches can also be some of the most difficult to protect, not just because of the sheer number of endpoints, but also the simplicity of the approach.
