More than every does the control systems security market have many available security improvement options in technologies and solutions. The threats are known and the industry understands the need to improve security. However, with limited availability of funding for security improvements, only through objective oriented security can an organization select the right solution to meet their needs. How will organizations establish these objectives? What is needed to meet these objectives?

This inaugural Oil & Gas briefing will explore these questions through invited speakers while showcasing current capabilities available today. Vendor presentations will focus on case-studies.

Introducing PowerShell as .NET Global Tool

This post was originally published on this site

PowerShell is very suitable for CI/CD scenarios due to its easy and well understood scripting paradigm,
and its cross-platform support makes it great for building and testing cross-platform applications.
A .NET Global Tool is a special NuGet package that contains a console application.

A .NET Core application can be developed for various platforms like Windows, various distributions of Linux and macOS, while the same PowerShell scripts can be used for building, testing and deployment across all platforms.

Installing PowerShell Global tool

If you already have the .NET Core SDK installed, it’s easy to install PowerShell as a .NET global tool!

dotnet tool install --global PowerShell

Once installed, you can run it with pwsh.

PowerShell in .NET SDK docker containers

PowerShell has already been included as a global tool within the .NET Core 3.0 Preview Docker images since Preview.4.
These images are a great starting point for building a .NET Core CI/CD image
(you can find some awesome samples
over at the dotnet-docker repo.)

Docker files with PowerShell syntax

As PowerShell comes pre-installed, Docker files can have PowerShell syntax.
This allows you to run scripts or cmdlets as part of your Docker file.

FROM mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/sdk:3.0
RUN pwsh -c Get-Date
RUN pwsh -c "Get-Module -ListAvailable | Select-Object -Property Name, Path"

Build scenarios in Docker

In addition to enabling PowerShell syntax, PowerShell scripts in the container can be easily invoked through Docker:

docker run -it -v c:myrepo:/myrepo -w /myrepo mcr.microsoft.com/dotnet/core/sdk:3.0 pwsh ./build.ps1

The NuGet package for the global tool can be found at: https://www.nuget.org/packages/PowerShell/

Please report issues or suggestions at: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/new/choose

Thank you!

AWS Named as a Leader in Gartner’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Magic Quadrant for the 9th Consecutive Year

This post was originally published on this site

My colleagues on the AWS service teams work to deliver what customers want today, and also do their best to anticipate what they will need tomorrow. This Customer Obsession, along with our commitment to Hire and Develop the Best (two of the fourteen Amazon Leadership Principles), helps us to figure out, and then to deliver on, our vision. It is always good to see that our hard work continues to delight customers, and to be recognized by Gartner and other leading analysts.

For the ninth consecutive year, AWS has secured the top-right corner of the Leader’s quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), earning highest placement for Ability to Execute and furthest for Completeness of Vision:

The full report contains a lot of detail and is a great summary of the features and factors that our customers examine when choosing a cloud provider.

Analyst Webcast: How to Build an Endpoint Security Strategy in AWS – July 18, 2019 1:00pm US/Eastern

This post was originally published on this site

Speakers: Thomas Banasik and David Aiken

Today’s cloud-based endpoint security solutions differ significantly from traditional on-premises solutions. Still considered a basic security requirement, endpoint security is the cornerstone of any successful cloud migration strategy. In this pre-recorded webcast, SANS analyst Thomas Banasik identifies the top challenges businesses face when migrating to the cloud and walks through the process of protecting cloud assets by using a defense-in-depth architecture to create a readily deployable, fully integrated endpoint security strategy.

Attendees will learn to:

  • Evaluate security, migration, scale, speed and complexity requirements
  • Implement key endpoint security capabilities, including integrated machine learning, EDR, UBA and DLP solutions
  • Deploy endpoint security agents and use a single pane of glass platform to increase visibility
  • Employ agentless monitoring for synchronized threat intelligence

Register for this webcast to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by Thomas Banasik.

Meet the Newest AWS News Bloggers!

This post was originally published on this site

I wrote my first post for this blog way back in 2004! Over the course of the first decade, the amount of time that I devoted to the blog grew from a small fraction of my day to a full day. In the early days my email inbox was my primary source of information about upcoming launches, and also my primary tool for managing my work backlog. When that proved to be unscalable, Ana came onboard and immediately built a ticketing system and set up a process for teams to request blog posts. Today, a very capable team (Greg, Devin, and Robin) takes care of tickets, platforms, comments, metrics, and so forth so that I can focus on what I like to do best: using new services and writing about them!

Over the years we have experimented with a couple of different strategies to scale the actual writing process. If you are a long-time reader you may have seen posts from Mike, Jinesh, Randall, Tara, Shaun, and a revolving slate of guest bloggers.

News Bloggers
I would like to introduce you to our current lineup of AWS News Bloggers. Like me, the bloggers have a technical background and are prepared to go hands-on with every new service and feature. Here’s our roster:

Steve Roberts (@bellevuesteve) – Steve focuses on .NET tools and technologies.

Julien Simon (@julsimon) – Julien likes to help developers and enterprises to bring their ideas to life.

Brandon West (@bwest) – Brandon leads our developer relations team in the Americas, and has written a book on the topic.

Martin Beeby (@thebeebs) – Martin focuses on .NET applications, and has worked as a C# and VB developer since 2001.

Danilo Poccia (@danilop) – Danilo works with companies of any size to support innovation. He is the author of AWS Lambda in Action.

Sébastien Stormacq (@sebesto) – Sébastien works with builders to unlock the value of the AWS cloud, using his secret blend of passion, enthusiasm, customer advocacy, curiosity, and creativity.

We are already gearing up for re:Invent 2019, and can’t wait to bring you a rich set of blog posts. Stay tuned!
