Your Journey to the Cloud Operating Model
(Interview hosted between Nick Holland, ISMG, and Ben Sabrin, Okta)
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Ben Sabrin – VP, Advanced Server Access, Okta
As organizations adopt more cloud infrastructure across AWS, GCP, and Microsoft Azure to keep up with the rapid pace of the innovation, there is a harsh realization that traditional approaches to security & operations simply can’t keep up. In a world where dynamic resources continuously spin up and down, and may only last for weeks, days, or even minutes, the only solution to reach the scale your business demands is to automate everything.
Automation doesn’t come without a wide range of complexities, though. With dynamic infrastructure, how can you ensure that your security policies are being adhered to in practice? How can you enable speed and scale for the business without compromising on compliance guidelines? From an identity & access management lens, what are some of the new challenges you’re facing in the cloud?
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how challenging security & operations requirements can be.
Discussion topics will include:
- How has the surface area you need to manage and protect changed in the cloud?
- How confident are you that your cloud security policies are being adhered to by your teams?
- Are you getting any pressures from the business to go faster? If so, from where?
- Is there anything holding you back from employing fully automated DevOps practices?
- What role do you see identity playing across your cloud infrastructure environments?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Ben Sabrin, Vice President, Advanced Server Access, at Okta.
