Panel: Cybersecurity Threats in the Cloud Software Supply Chain

High-profile software supply chain attacks, such as SolarWinds and Kaseya VSA, have shed a glaring light on the disparity between agencies’ perceptions of security within their cloud infrastructure and the reality of supply chain threats that can impact business catastrophically. The federal government has responded with an Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, guidance such as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cloud Technical Reference Architecture and the National Security Agency/CISA Kubernetes Hardening Guide.

Tune in to this panel to hear what topic experts have to say on threat assessment within the cloud and how the Executive Order impacted agencies’ cloud security practices. This panel will discuss key questions such as how can Zero Trust principles help alleviate security concerns within the cloud? How have specific agencies reacted to the new executive requirements for security and cloud management?
