All organizations must protect their confidential information. After all, it is this information that gives the organization its competitive value and enables it to achieve its mission. Security operations (SecOps) is focused on the day-to-day tasks necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the organization’s data and the systems that process it. Moving this data to the cloud certainly brings creates some SecOps challenges. What works on-premise may not work effectively in the cloud and might not scale well.

Concerns about the trustworthiness of the cloud are the most significant barrier to cloud adoption. Knowing these apprehensions, Cloud Service Providers (CSP) and other solution providers are tackling this challenge head-on and have created innovative solutions to help cloud customers secure the data they process in the cloud. Cloud-native technical security controls that leverage application programming interfaces (API) and the software-defined aspects of cloud services enable customers to lock down their environments in ways that are not possible on-premise. These capabilities have caused some to argue that a properly configured cloud environment may be more secure.

The challenge with so much innovation and so many choices is that customers can get overwhelmed with all the hype in the marketplace. The SANS Cloud Security Operations Solutions Forum will focus on cloud security operations solutions that work, with a focus on providing specific technical advice directly from the vendor support engineers working in the field.
