Andrew Hay & Matt Johansen: "Applications and Cloud and Hackers, Oh My!" (BSides Las Vegas 2012) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Andrew Hay & Matt Johansen: "Applications and Cloud and Hackers, Oh My!"

It would be irresponsible to state that cloud computing is directly responsible for the increased number of vulnerable applications on the Internet. Stating that cloud has likely provided a platform upon which to rapidly deploy vulnerable applications, however, is probably something we can all agree on. Getting your product to market faster than your competitors has always been a primary business goal. Now that organizations rely on web based applications to operate their business, both startups and established businesses continue to relegate security of their applications to a future roadmap item or, even worse, the feature request bucket. In this FUD-free session, CloudPassage Chief Evangelist, Andrew Hay and WhiteHat Security Threat Research Manager, Matt Johansen will break down the top security considerations specific to developing, testing and deploying web applications in SaaS, PaaS and IaaS cloud architectures and offer practical steps to easily secure both your applications and cloud servers.
