  Topic:  Cloud Security Through Threat Modeling

One of the most effective tools developers can implement in their security development lifecycle programs is threat modeling. Robert will discuss how effective threat modeling techniques enable developers to uncover security vulnerabilities before code is even written. Together they will reveal how threat modeling also applies to cloud environments. Whether building a hybrid model, purely commodity cloud, or Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment, threat modeling helps identify the attack surface area and likely threat vectors. Finally, they will explain to attendees that threat modeling allows developers and operations personnel to address vulnerabilities as enterprises migrate to the cloud.

  Speaker:   Robert Zigweid
