The Best Cloud Security Conferences to Attend in 2019

Securing any cloud infrastructure is a big job. You need to be constantly up to date on skills, tools, and technology, as well as the vulnerabilities and threats that crop up continuously. When it comes to security, becoming stagnant is not an option. A good cloud security professional only remains on top by keeping up with the latest cloud security trends, emerging threats, and best practices.

That’s where cloud security conferences come in, bringing together top experts, cloud security thought leaders, and industry professionals to share tips, tricks, and the latest tactics for bolstering cloud security in the modern landscape.

With the spring conference season kicking off, we’ve rounded up 40 cloud security conferences, grouped by quarter, so you can easily plan your schedule for 2019. For the most part, we’ve focused on North America — but keeping in mind that security is a global issue, of course — we’ve also included a few key events that are being held in other locations.

Visualizing Detection & Remediation in the Cloud With Graylog — Webinar Recap

If you’re on a Security team, chances are you may be able to leverage some of the Operations team’s existing tools for log management and SIEM. That was certainly the case with Threat Stack’s use of Graylog.

On June 22, Sam Bisbee, Threat Stack’s CSO, joined Lennart Koopmann, the founder and CTO of Graylog, to discuss how Threat Stack moved from a manual logging system with data silos and a lack of overall visibility, to using centralized log management and a SIEM to create a holistic picture of our cloud infrastructure security — incorporating data from our own systems as well as third-party applications to cost-effectively create real-time actionable security intelligence.

During the webinar, Sam and Lennart addressed key questions including the following:

  • Why host your own log management system?
  • What drove the need for a SIEM?
  • How did Threat Stack unify its data across various platforms?
  • How did Threat Stack make our security intelligence actionable?

Here’s a recap of the discussion which, I hope, will be helpful if you’re evaluating log management or SIEM vendors for inclusion in your SecOps tech stack. Read more “Visualizing Detection & Remediation in the Cloud With Graylog — Webinar Recap”
