Sophos webinar: Seven best practices for securing cloud

The use of multi-cloud affects security in a number of ways and organisations need to know what measures to take to avert threats, says Sophos.

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 company’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 your goal, this Webinar can help. It explores the seven most important steps in securing the public cloud, providing practical guidance that every organisation can follow. It includes the results of threat research from SophosLabs about the frequency with which cyber criminals target cloud-based instances.

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).

Your speaker, Rich Beckett, senior product marketing manager at Sophos, will arm you with a practical set of best practice approaches to securing the public cloud – based on conversations with CISOs in a range of businesses around the world.

We will assess the differences between tradition and public cloud security, and the key areas you need to secure, such as:

  • Data: This could be credit card or customer info – info criminals can sell on, intellectual property, or other such secrets.
  • Systems: Cyber criminals 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.

Learn about various vulnerabilities you can be exposed to, such as automated attacks, automated cryptojacking and compliance and visibility challenges.


  • Gain insight into planning for multi-cloud;
  • Enhance visibility of networks;
  • Learn how to integrate compliance into your daily processes; and
  • Find out how to automate your security controls.
