KEYNOTE: Resilience through security on the cloud – 143

Abstract

How does security affect resilience? For example, are your cloud security measures implemented in a way that can respond to changing demand quickly, and do your security measures make your environment more resistant to disruption from different types of attacks? In this session, we’ll discuss the essentials of cloud security — such as threats, vulnerabilities, risks, and preventive and detective controls, and how different security measures can both positively and negatively impact resilience.
