Developing a Cloud Infrastructure Security Plan
We recently hosted a panel of industry experts who shared advice on prioritizing cloud infrastructure security projects to maximize return on time and investment.
Identities are a more dominant factor in cloud infrastructure security than most enterprises realize -- so should serve as an essential focus area for any cloud protection plan.

Arick Goomanovsky, Co-Founder, Ermetic
In this panel, you will learn:
- Which functional requirements to prioritize in a cloud infrastructure security plan
- How user and service identities are essential for cloud infrastructure protection

The panelists shared their unique insights into this critically important area of cyber security, with use-case illustrations derived from practical day-to-day experiences dealing with the increasing risk of cyber threats to public cloud-hosted workloads.
