Cloud 9 – Cloud Security

Hosted by Mozstro

Let’s talk about all things cloud security…

From the common pitfalls when implementing cloud security and how to overcome them to the nitty gritty of how to implement declarative RBAC.

At the end of the talks, there will be time for a Q&A and a general chat about all things cloud security.

We will be providing free pizza! Drinks will be available for purchase from the Brew Society bar.

Talk 4: Cloud Metadata Attacks: How to detect this Rising Threat and it’s sneaky evasion tactics

I will be talking around cloud metadata attacks in AWS and how if IMDSV1 is used, this can give attackers an in to grab credentials for an full account takeover. I will be discussing big publicly known incidents where this attack has happened in the past, detection methods using various log sources such as AWS CloudTrail, AWS WAF and Cloudwatch logs and sneaky evasion tactics that attackers may use including VPC endpoints & URL shorteners.
