CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – August 2021

DevOps, DevSecOps, CI/CD Pipeline are definitely hot topics within the Cloud Computing industry. In the forthcoming knowledge sharing session, we will address issues on DevOps and CI/CD security protection, this time from the perspective of a security vendor.

In our August event, Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong & Macau Chapter has invited Kev Hau from CheckPoint Software Technologies Ltd to talk about Modern Cloud Application Security.

Protecting applications has always been challenging. As applications grow in number, size and complexity. Cloud application are made up of multiple layers – from the cloud infrastructure, to the DevOps pipelines, the microservices (containers, serverless functions and virtual machines), the application layer and the APIs.

Today, application developers are directly provisioning applications to the cloud by using cloud platforms like AWS, Google and Azure without any additional assistance from IT or platform teams. Developers release and update software on demand in the cloud using continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) for rapid software releases and updates. In addition, modern applications are more open and connected with an increased number of APIs, which further expands the attack surface where legacy application security approach is ineffective.

To protection the modern cloud application, we need a new approach – shifting security responsibilities to those creating software, the developers, and it shifts it to the beginning of the process when the developers are provisioning infrastructure.

Please do not miss this opportunity to learn from the expert and get connected with your peers.

Participants will claim 1 CPE.
