COAGA Webinar - Introduction to Cloud Security Audit/Stopping Ransomware Cold

First half: In the past decade, cloud computing has gone from a Silicon Valley buzzword to a nearly ubiquitous facet of daily operations. In a world where the instant “spin up” of cloud resources has replaced the traditional selection, purchase, and deployment of on-premises servers and applications, have your audit procedures kept pace? This session will cover key steps in developing a risk-based audit plan for your organization’s cloud footprint, methods for scoping individual audits, and tactics for developing audit programs that align with industry standard control frameworks.


Second half: Ransomware is one of the most devastating cyber-attack methods that exists today, and these attacks are seemingly getting more difficult to prevent and recover from. Does your organization have a plan for when the lights go out, data and systems become unavailable, the phones stop working, or the manufacturing floor comes to a crashing halt? Join us in a real-world case study of a massive ransomware attack that shut down a global business operation for many weeks, and tips on how to position your organization to respond to a similar attack.
