Best practices to secure applications in cloud

Submitted Apr 7, 2019

Security in cloud should be approched a little differently than traditional on-premise security. In cloud, security is a shared responsibility of the customer and the cloud service provider. This talk with highlight how one should secure the applications and infrastructure in cloud.


The talk will focus on different layers of attacks that an application can face and will cover in detail how to apply securtiy measures on each layer to protect from attacks. Will introduce the concept of defence in depth or zero trust infrastructure where every element of the infrastructre is designed such that it is an untrusted element. This helps keep the infrastructure secure at each layer. I will talk about examples of how to protect each layer of the cloud application including hardware, Boot, OS, Storage, network, application deployment, operation and usage.
