Protecting Your Data: What You Need to Know about Cloud Security and the Dark Web

Effectively leveraging the cloud is not just about migrating data and applications. Security must travel into the cloud as well. When organizations fail to understand that security in the cloud is a shared responsibility, the consequences can be disastrous (and profitable for threat actors!). In this session, Armor will demonstrate the vulnerability of your unprotected data in the cloud via a real-world experiment using “honeypots” disguised as a healthcare web portal. You will learn:

  • The most likely attacks your organization will face
  • How active and dynamic security controls can mitigate risk
  • Simple steps you can take to prevent a breach
  • Why your data is so valuable on the Dark Web (findings from Armor’s Black Market Report)

Corey has more than 18 years of IT experience. Before coming to Armor, he worked his way up the Army ranks, retiring as a Chief Warrant Officer and one of the Army’s first Cyber Operations Technicians. He holds some of the industry’s most sought-after certifications including CISSP, GCIA, GNFA, and GCTI. As a member of Armor’s Threat Response Unit, Corey provides threat intelligence support to the SOC and other divisions as needed, enhancing their efforts by collecting and analyzing open and closed source threat intelligence feeds, reporting on priority threats, identifying Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) in support of network monitoring and incident response, and analyzing logs to identify hidden threats.
