VCW 2021 – What’s the Cloud Got To Do with IT?
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
|Date: Feb 16, 2021 | 12:00pm-1:00pm
Shifts to cloud or hybrid infrastructures pose new challenges and exciting opportunities for businesses of all shapes and sizes. But infosec professionals are also impacted and they must wade through the ambiguity of “the cloud” first. What is it and how does it impact the way they harden network posture? Especially in today’s remote workplace?
Circadence’s Karl Gossett suggests that the business decisions to shift to the cloud must require a renewed focus on professional cyber skills training and development in order to mitigate and prevent the inherent risks that come with such moves. While the promise of the cloud excites business leaders, cyber professionals are often left seeking the latest knowledge, skills and abilities needed to execute tactics and techniques in these new environments. Karl will explain how “the cloud” is typically interpreted today in business and infosecurity fields and provide first-hand stories (and lessons learned) of efforts to secure the cloud using live, interactive tools and knowledge sharing.

About the Virtual Cyber Workshop Series
In an effort to keep our members, the Greater Washington DC region, and the world informed and connected we are holding a series of FREE Cyber workshops. We want to give you an outlet as we all adjust to the new norms we are faced with as a result of the escalating health concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, we hope you can join us.
We have a great lineup of presenters who will cover a variety of interesting topics for which one (1) CPE can be earned for each webinar attended. You will need to self-certify, however, as GWDC will not be sending you a CPE certificate.
