Securing Your Move to

Cloud Native

Is your organisation ready to handle the cultural change in moving to cloud native environments and the impact this has on people and processes?

We’re living and working in a cloud-native world. The introduction of cloud-native applications has seen a rise in the challenges many organisations and their leaders face. Leadership priorities including how to develop and implement both a culture and a strategy to proactively address security requirements in this DevOps centric arena can be mind-boggling at times.

Amidst the pace of the ever-changing digital landscape, today’s enterprises are looking to move to the cloud as fast as possible. As more and more companies move toward implementing cloud-native and open source technologies to enable agility and increased time-to-value, the operational impacts to the business can be significant. While these common challenges can cause setbacks and complexity, if an organisation addresses them from the very beginning as part of its cloud strategy, it can overcome them effectively.

Join Aqua and your peers – other senior IT decision-makers, as we discuss how you can demonstrate cloud security leadership, and what other challenges you may face as you embark on your digital transformation journey and ultimately, how to overcome those challenges.

Cloud Native Security Advisor, Aqua Security

Steve started his cyber security life being kicked out of his high school computing class by elevating his privilege to root, and doing what any 16-year-old would do, changing the teacher’s password to his dog’s name, “peaches”. It was the 80s when cyber-security was largely defined by the film War Games. 

Since then, he has spent time in the aero, telecom and automotive industries with craftsmanship, safety, and security as a focus for over 30 years in software.  He’s leveraging his breadth of industry knowledge with Aqua as a dedicated DevSecOps champion, securing cloud native applications. Prior to joining Aqua Security, he was a Lead Solution Architect for the Software Integrity Group at Synopsys focusing on Enterprise solutions for application security testing and scalable secure CI/CD solutions. 

He’s also has a fun podcast discussing cloud native technologies and methodologies with industry thought leaders and security gurus called BeerSecOps.
