This episode of the Information Security Podcast features a keynote from the Information Security Summit 2019 by Grant Asplund @gasplund from Check Point Software @CheckPointSW “Migrating to the Public Cloud...so, What’s the Big Deal?”. The presentation is both enlightening and entertaining while examining the many factors an organization should consider when migrating to the Public Cloud.
Key Discussion Points and Actionable Items:
- Parallels between the Mainframe in the past and the Public Cloud today
- Recognition that knowledge from the past of operating and securing On Premise environments don’t directly translate to the Public Cloud
- Importance of an organization asking the basic question “Am I using the Public Cloud securely?”
- The paradigm shift when having an “always connected resource” that must be managed 7x24x365 and the demands it places on IT and Security Teams
- The requirement to “re-tool” the solutions supporting an organization in the Public Cloud especially when using technologies such as Kubernetes and microservices
- Benefits of leveraging the Public Cloud when designed, implemented, and operated properly.
