Gem Sponsors Black Hat Webinar with Fortune 500 Security Leader on Multi-Cloud Detection and Incident Response

Gem Security

Gem Security, the cloud detection and response (CDR) company, today announced that it is sponsoring a free Black Hat webinar on the topic of  “Multi-Cloud Detection and Incident Response: Practical Lessons from a F500 Security Leader.”

Led by Andrew Tabona, SVP of Cyber Threat Management & Incident Response for a well-known F500 financial services firm with operations in more than 40 countries, the webinar will describe new approaches for reducing Mean Time to Respond (MTTR) in modern multi-cloud environments (AWS, Azure, GCP).

The Dark Side of the Cloud: How the Cloud Makes Life Easier for Attackers

While the cloud enables greater business agility and innovation, the “dark side” of the cloud is that it also makes it easier for attackers to breach the critical infrastructure upon which our businesses depend.

Leveraging the cloud’s centralized control plane, attackers can now programmatically execute multi-step attack chains including discovering resources, escalating privileges, and accessing sensitive data. Plus, the richness of cloud services creates endless opportunities and multiple attack paths for adversaries, many of which are specific to each cloud provider.

Scale and Complexity Challenges

For incident responders, modern multi-cloud infrastructures bring increased complexity, massive scale, and accelerated rates of change, along with the need for new and specialized skills which are in short supply.

  • Why new approaches to log ingestion, detection engineering, noise reduction, and investigation are required for the cloud.
  • How to define playbooks and cross-functional processes enabling IR teams to quickly contain incidents and contain threats before they impact your business.
  • Why Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) alone is not enough to prevent breaches.

Andrew will be joined by Ron Konigsberg, CTO and Co-Founder of Gem, who will describe the architecture and give a technical demo of Gem’s platform for cloud investigation and response automation (CIRA) and cloud detection and response (CDR).
