Seeing through the Fog

Zack Fasel Urbane Security

Yes. “The Cloud” (drink). Even though many of us would much like to see use of public clouds decline, they’re not going away any time soon. And with such, a plethora of companies now have revolutionary new solutions to solve your “cloud problems”. From crypto to single sign on with two step auth, proxies to monitoring and DLP, every vendor has a solution, even cloud based for the cloud!

What we haven’t seen is much of an open source or community lead solution to these problems. So let’s change that.

Zack will review the laundry list of security problems with various cloud providers (and their plethora of APIs), provide some easy fixes to the common issues seen, and introduce a few new open source tools to help monitor and defend the data and access in the wild.
