Lessons from a CISO: Achieving Continuous Compliance

 

Overview

Does meeting stringent compliance requirements keep you up at night? Do you worry about having the right audit trails in place as proof?

Cengage Learning’s Chief Security Officer, Robert Hotaling, shares his organization’s journey to AWS, and how they enabled continuous compliance for their dynamic environment with automation. When Cengage shifted from publishing to digital education and online learning, they needed a secure elastic infrastructure for their data intensive and cyclical business, and workload layer security tools that would help them meet compliance requirements (e.g., PCI).

In this session, you will learn why building security in from the beginning saves you time (and painful retrofits) later, how to gather and retain audit evidence for instances that are only up for minutes or hours, and how Cengage used Trend Micro Deep Security to meet many compliance requirements and ensured instances were instantly protected as they came online in a hybrid cloud architecture.
