Cloud Security - Threats (Wave 2)

MVISION Cloud Threat Investigation with MITRE ATT&CK

Speaker: Sandeep Chandana - Director, Data Scientist for the Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

The world’s leading security teams use MITRE ATT&CK. With MVISION Cloud, McAfee is bringing cloud security incidents into the mainstream SOC. For many security teams today, cloud threat investigation is a manual, labor-intensive process. It’s difficult to gain visibility to attacks occurring across your cloud environment, from Microsoft 365, to Box, to Azure, AWS, and all the other services you use. Events can regularly be in the millions, which creates a roadblock to developing a repeatable risk mitigation process. MVISION Cloud pre-filters millions of events to thousands of anomalies and often just dozens of true threats to your cloud environment. Now, those threats and anomalies are tagged and mapped to MITRE ATT&CK, so the cloud speaks the same language as the rest of your SOC. You have multiple workflows to choose from – directly feeding the MITRE ATT&CK events to your SIEM or SOAR platform via API, or visualizing attacks in MVISION Cloud. In MVISION Cloud, you can visualize attacks that have already occurred, and ones currently in progress, with policy recommendations for the actual adversary techniques being used against you.

Cloud Security - Threats (Wave 2)

Top 5 Adversarial Techniques in a Cloud-native Breach

Speaker: Sandeep Chandana - Director, Data Science

1 in 3 enterprises say they’re aware of an attack against their cloud infrastructure, yet fewer have the ability to audit for configuration errors that let these attacks happen. This lack of visibility likely means attacks are going unreported – putting data at risk every day. In a recent study, security teams around the world told us they estimate about 37 misconfigurations occur in their cloud environments each month, but when we look at real-world data, the reality is actually thousands. Many companies still have a long way to go in their ability to detect cloud-native breaches. These attacks typically don’t use malware – instead the native features of the cloud service provider to land, expand, and ultimately exfiltrate data. This is a new paradigm that requires a new perspective and tooling to mitigate risk.

Efficient Enterprise - SASE (Wave 2)

In this session we’ll outline the top 7 security use cases for Office 365 across Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Azure and provide a model for determining which use cases to tackle first.

Cloud Security - IaasS (Wave 2)

Cloudy with a Chance of Containers

Speaker: Rich Vorwaller - Director, Product Management

Containers are Ephemeral, Immutable and Inevitable! By 2022, greater than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production - a significant increase from fewer than 30% today (Gartner, May 2019). Container workloads are a natural progression of virtualization and are optimized to take full advantage of the promise of the cloud. The power of dynamic container workloads and microservice architectures push the boundaries of traditional cloud security policies. McAfee MVISION Cloud for Container Security provides a comprehensive, unified cloud security platform with container optimized strategies for securing ephemeral container workloads and the infrastructure they depend upon.

Cloud Security - Threats (Wave 2)

Anatomy of a Cloud Attack

Cloud Security - Overview (Wave 1)

Secure Your Cloud, 2020 and Beyond

Speaker: Kaushik Narayan - CTO, Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

Cloud security has evolved as quickly as the cloud itself with 90% of sensitive data now in sanctioned apps like Microsoft 365 and Salesforce. As production workloads and information assets increasingly migrate to the cloud, the threat landscape continues to evolve. These trends are leading to a platform approach that optimizes visibility and control, no matter where data resides. Learn how McAfee is investing in MVISION Cloud.

Cloud Security - IaaS (Wave 1)

The DevOps Complexity Conundrum: Cloud Security Shifts Left

Speaker: Sekhar Sarukkai - McAfee Fellow and Chief Scientist of the Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

According to Gartner, nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement and mistakes. Through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” The spotlight is shining brightly on the intersection of DevOps and Security. Security is pushed earlier in the DevOps process so that security professionals can catch risky configurations before they become a threat in production. DevSecOps may include vulnerability assessment of images, automated checks against known bad configuration as soon as code is checked in – all well before an image is deployed. Learn how MVISION Cloud helps enterprises "Shift Left" to confidently deploy applications in the cloud with greater speed and agility.

Cloud Security - IaaS/CNAPP (Wave 1)

Introducing McAfee MVISION Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP)

Speaker: Kaushik Narayan - CTO, Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

This session will go into why you need XDR to build a more efficient SOC.

Cloud Security - UCE (Wave 1)

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE): Making Cloud Adoption Fast, Easy and Secure

Speaker: Suhaas Kodagali - Senior Product Manager, McAfee

Our networks are changing. For some, they’ve already transitioned to a widely distributed array of devices, physical sites, and cloud services. Most of the traffic from our devices and sites goes to the cloud, so why do we still rely on a walled garden to protect our data?

Efficient Enterprise - Endpoint/XDR (Wave 1)

Cloud Security - IaaS (Wave 1)

MVISION Cloud Security for IaaS and Containers

Speaker: Dennen Monks - Senior Cloud Security Architect, McAfee

Cloud adoption is mainstream. According to Gartner, the worldwide public cloud services market is forecast to grow 17% in 2020 to a total $266.4 billion, up from $227.8 billion in 2019, as enterprises consolidate their data centers to leverage the promise of the public cloud. Mistakes, mismanagement and misconfigurations make IaaS a prime target for cyberattacks.

Cloud Security - Overview (Wave 1)

How to Manage Cloud Security Risks in a "Work from Anywhere" World

Speaker: Sekhar Sarukkai - McAfee Fellow and Chief Scientist, Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

Google, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Amazon, Salesforce – what do all of these companies have in common? Each a large enterprise, each embracing a shift to working from home for their global employees. Others such as Twitter and Shopify have gone “Remote-First” in 2020, abandoning the central office altogether. What does this mean for cybersecurity?

Cloud Security - Overview (Wave 1)

Cloud Security Architecture for Zero Trust

Speaker: Sekhar Sarukkai - McAfee Fellow and Chief Scientist, Cloud Business Unit, McAfee

Zero trust network access (ZTNA), also known as the software-defined perimeter (SDP), is a set of technologies that operates on an adaptive trust model, where trust is never implicit, and access is granted on a “need-to-know,” least-privileged basis defined by granular policies. ZTNA gives users seamless and secure connectivity to private applications without ever placing them on the network or exposing apps to the internet. Is this enough?

Cloud Security - SaaS (Wave 1)

Cloud Security on the Front Lines: Data Protection in Common Business Applications

Speaker: Dennen Monks - Senior Cloud Security Architect, McAfee

1 in 4 files in the cloud contain sensitive data. Security teams have a challenge in front of them to protect that data, as there are front, back, and side doors for your data to enter and exit the cloud. Sharing a file with a colleague or business partner can be enough to cause a breach – for example, 1 in 10 sensitive files in the cloud are shared with a link accessible by anyone in the world.
