4410 - 10 Reasons Why Micro-Segmentation and Clouds are Not Secure

Monday, September 25
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Micro-segmentation and cloud architectures decrease threat landscape by design. However, this smaller threat surface creates a false sense of good security. This presentation will clearly demonstrate 10 security controls that are missing in such architectures. Standard private (OpenStack and NSX) and public cloud architectures (AWS and Azure) with micro-segmentation will be presented and analyzed for 10 security controls that are missing. They include identification, authentication, authorization, vulnerability, anti-virus, advance persistence threat detection, denial of service and data protection, visibility with analytics and security system automation.

Attendees will learn how to add these 10 controls to micro-segmentation to architect strong security. We'll show how implementation of most of these controls may be used to set a foundation for zero-trust model implementation.
