CircleCityCon: Tips for Simplified Cloud Security Monitoring

Cloud means more services to monitor, a wider attack surface, and more tools, leading to blindspots. In fact, lack of visibility in a cloud environment is what contributed to the infamous Capital One AWS breach in 2019.

Join Blumira’s Nato Riley, Integrations Engineer at CircleCityCon 8.0, where you’ll learn practical tips you can apply to your cloud security strategy to combat rising threats, including:

  • What log sources are most important to monitor to identify indicators of attacker techniques early and respond quickly to contain a breach
  • Why misconfigurations occur, how they can lead to data breaches, and what you should do to detect them
  • How cloud monitoring differs from monitoring on-premises environments like Microsoft Active Directory
  • How to get the most value out of a SIEM so you can detect and prevent cloud threats
