5416 - Secure Applications, Not the Cloud

Tuesday, September 26
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

As the massive and strategic shift to cloud computing takes place, security needs to be a top priority. But organizations that are worrying specifically about “cloud security” are misdirecting their time and energy. In the cloud, there’s no longer a well-defined perimeter that can be protected by hardware appliances, so security professionals need to fundamentally rethink traditional approaches to security in favor of programmatic, software-defined solutions.

The Software Engineering Institute estimates that 90 percent of reported security incidents result from exploits against defects in the design or code of software. By focusing on much-needed improvements to application security, more secure cloud environments will follow. This session will detail the cultural and technical adjustments that organizations need to make to improve security in this new, software-defined world.
