Learn about Seven Best Practices for Securing your Public Cloud

What does success look like to you when it comes to securing applications in the public cloud?

Perhaps it’s surviving the year without hitting the headlines for a data breach. Or being able to understand your organisation’s cloud infrastructure footprint so you can accurately secure it? Maybe you want to ensure compliance audits go off without a hitch? Or improve collaboration on security and compliance fixes with siloed compliance and development teams?

Whatever you want to do, this webinar can help. It explores the seven most important steps in securing the public cloud, providing practical guidance that every organization can follow. It includes the results of threat research from SophosLabs into the frequency with which cybercriminals target cloud-based instances.

Attend this FREE online event to learn more about the differences between traditional and public cloud security and the key areas you need to secure, such as:

  • Data: This could be credit card or customer info - info that they can sell on, intellectual property, or other such secrets.
  • Systems: Cybercriminals want to move around your network, install malicious software, and lock-out legitimate users.
  • CPU power: Crooks want to take advantage of your electricity and processing power for their own purposes, such as to mine for crypto currencies.

Join this session to find out the seven security best practices to follow when using Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
