Why You’re Losing the Cyber Battle and How Embracing the Cloud Will Help You Fight Back
Presented by: Matt Soseman
Join us as Matt Soseman a Cyber Security Architect from Microsoft discusses the issues that we are facing today with cloud with a visit at where we have been, what the blockers are, and where we are going. He’ll dive into how cloud migration isn’t the issue, but how to use public cloud to protect/detect/respond to cyber threats while maintaining (even increasing) compliance. Learn how public cloud fights cyber attacks on your behalf, and helps you comply with the law of the land but most importantly how it can transform your business. Adoption of cloud is important, but how you get there is through aligning to business outcomes to reach the vision.

Auditing the Cloud
Presenter: Loren Schwartz
The Federal Government agencies are rapidly moving to the Cloud. This presents the auditor with new challenges to accurately audit their systems. Also, working with federal agencies requires what most consider a second language. During this presentation Mr. Schwartz will sort through the jargon and alphabet soup of Cloud environments including CSP, IaaS, SaaS, AWS, PaaS, FedRamp, DaaS, JAB, DBaaS, and help guide you through an approach to auditing your agencies adoption of a cloud service provider. As we discuss potential audit approaches, we will consider the nature of the cloud service and the roles and responsibilities of the cloud provider and the procuring agency.
