Event description


With the "move to the cloud," and the volume and complexity of today's security threats increasing each and every day, companies are not only challenged with securing their data, but also in managing a multitude of security incidents through multiple tools with little to no resources.

Join the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) New York Metro Chapter on Wednesday, May 29th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at the AWS NY Loft for practical guidance on how to securely move to cloud services.


6:00 - 6:30 PM - Arrival and Registration, Networking, Appetizers and Drinks

6:30 - 6:45 PM - Welcome, Announcements and Chapter Overview, Gili Lev, President & Chairman of CSA NY Metro BoD & AWS Security Advisor

6:45 - 7:15 PM - Principles of an Effective Cloud Security Strategy, Jon Villa, Cloud Security Practice Director, GuidePoint Security

With public cloud continuing to rapidly expand through the release of new services, deployment models, and architectures information security organizations continue to find themselves looking for effective cloud security controls. In this session, GuidePoint Security will describe how organizations have implemented effective strategies based on real world experience and leadership.

7:15 - 7:30 PM - Sponsor Recognition: Baffle, Fugue, Jefferson Frank

7:30 - 8:00 PM - Agile Cloud Security, Nicholas Arvanitis, Two Sigma

Businesses often adopt public cloud technologies to increase agility and scale rapidly. However, if security organizations do not adapt their processes to suit this newfound pace of innovation, they can often slow down workflows and innovation. The public cloud creates an opportunity to rebuild security processes in an automated, agile manner. This talk outlines how Two Sigma's cloud security team took advantage of the opportunity presented by expanding into public cloud to build a more agile and secure cloud environment.

8:00 - 9:00 PM - Networking and Happy Hour

Thank you to our sponsors: Baffle, Fugue, Jefferson Frank
