Session Name: The control of Cloud resources in a constrained environment: to be or not to be Cloud confident
Behind the enthusiastic move of deploying and consuming public cloud resources with so much ease and rapidity hides a more delicate moment to come: when realizing that your assets are vulnerable and open to bad intentions. This aspect became a real concern, as more and more attacks are perpetuating these days against various companies and institutions. Equally, the same facility in consuming the public cloud brings alive a large number of resources, often without or with limited governance around them. This session will be the occasion of sharing experiences, processes, implementations of structured frameworks for controlling and governing public cloud resources to report compliance, protect against bad practices, or remediate configurations. Concrete focus on Microsoft Azure, but applicable on AWS and other public cloud providers.
When the cloud computing was taking off in the late 2000s, Marius has perceived its enormous potential. From then, he follows up closely the evolution of the cloud technologies, with focus on IaaS, PaaS or hybrid architectures, and particularly in Azure, the Microsoft’s cloud. He has a mixed background of developer and IT professional, allowing it to position himself in consulting on complex application or infrastructure projects, as well as training and coaching teams on developing, administering and architecting cloud solutions. As Azure MVP and Advisor, Marius Zaharia works closely with Microsoft product teams on giving feedback and insights on various Azure services and technologies. Marius is a passionate and proactive member in the global Azure community, community manager of AZUG FR (Azure User Group France), organizer and speaker at cloud related events and conferences, blog writer, and – in its limited spare time left – guitar player and singer.
