Video Description

Like the physical infrastructure, the security threats and controls surrounding network security in the cloud is very similar to those on the corporate network. Perhaps the overriding best practice when it comes to network security - either on the intranet or in the cloud - is to always remove unnecessary services! A few of the topics we discuss in this video are:

  • Secure hardware configuration
  • Server best practices
  • Host hardening via patching and lockdown
  • Secure on-going configuration maintenance
  • Virtualization security
  • Transport layer security
  • DNS threats and security
  • Implementation of IPSec to secure data in motion
