Webinar: How to Continuously Monitor and Assess Your Security Posture in the AWS Cloud

September 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

AWS September 17 event

Thursday, September 17th 11:00 pacific | 2:00 eastern

The ability to maintain your security posture is becoming increasingly complex as network perimeters become more software-defined, and release cycles speed up.

To strengthen and maintain your security posture in the cloud, security teams can leverage automated means of continually assessing cloud network traffic, user activity, and configuration of systems and services running within the cloud environment.

Join SANS and AWS Marketplace to learn how to create and implement an effective continuous monitoring and assessment strategy. They will present real-world examples that will help you secure your cloud control plane, identify misconfigurations, uncover security gaps, and enable you to better predict, prevent, and respond to events.

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS senior instructor and cloud security expert Dave Shackleford.
