F-Secure Consulting Event

Detection and Response in the Cloud

Thursday, December 5 2019

8:30 - 11:30 AM

Andaz 5th Avenue, New York City, United States

Register your interest in attending our next private breakfast briefing on Thursday, December 5th.

Drawn by scalability, accessibility, and responsiveness, companies are increasingly relying on or moving to the cloud for business-critical functions. And while it has changed the security paradigm, it has not prevented breaches. In fact, F-Secure’s Incident Response team has estimated approximately half of the incidents they encountered over the last 12 months involved the cloud.

At this morning event you can expect to learn and discuss:

  • Effective cloud security management at scale
  • Common misconceptions about cloud security
  • How to prepare your business to respond quickly to incidents in the cloud

There are a limited number of seats, so register your interest today. 


8:30 - 09:00 AM Networking and breakfast
9:00 - 11:00 AM Presentations and Panel Discussion
11:00 - 11:30 AM Closing remarks and networking


Incident Response in the Cloud
Matt Lawrence, Global Lead for Incident Response

The benefits of pay-as-you-go cloud infrastructure have led organizations to move significant chunks of their infrastructure to the cloud. This has changed the security paradigm, but has not prevented breaches and the need for forensic investigations within the cloud. How do you capture artefacts from or isolate a host you have no physical access to? This talk will debunk many common misconceptions, and show how any organization can easily prepare itself to respond quickly to incidents in the cloud. Matt will also talk through some of the common best practices the F-Secure Incident Response team have developed to operate in this area.

Defending the Cloud
Nick Jones and Alfie Champion – Senior Security Consultants, Cyber Defense

The traditional on-premise, corporate environment is a battlefield well-known to attackers and defenders alike, but 'cloud-first' digital transformations bring new threats, attack vectors, and risks. Though some existing security concepts translate to the cloud, a mindset shift is required to effectively detect and respond to attacks. This talk considers the fundamental differences between protecting cloud and on-premise environments, detailing the offensive techniques a motivated attacker will utilize to undermine your cloud security. We'll also give guidance on how to improve and continuously validate detection and response capabilities necessary to deliver resilient cloud environments.

Panel Discussion: Demystifying Cloud Security

During this panel discussion, a guest speaker will join us to probe the market's top cloud products, and answer recently crowdsourced cloud security questions that are top of mind for CISOs.

The panelists will discuss and answer questions around:

  • Key Challenges: shadow IT, culture, and security's seat at the table
  • Real world lessons learned: delivering cloud consultancy along the client maturity curve
  • Vendors: are they all marketing fluff or the real deal?
  • Building a strategy vs playing catch-up
