2019 Rochester Symposium
Advancing Cloud Security: A Roadmap

#IANSRochester #IANSEvents

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 | 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Hilton Garden Inn Rochester Downtown, Rochester, NY

Securing the cloud is fundamentally different from how it’s done on-premises, with sensitive tools and data living outside the seemingly more-controllable confines of company headquarters. But there are very few guidebooks or clear methods to ensure adequate protection. Leading-edge organizations are doing amazing things with cloud-native and DevSecOps approaches, but they’ve matured their security operational capabilities the hard way.

Security practitioners feel the urgency to move resources to the cloud but face an intractable skills gap and other challenges. They want to know how to overcome these obstacles, with clear objectives and milestones to guide them.

Led by IANS Faculty member Mike Rothman, this 5-hour symposium will help attendees find the answers, and return to their organizations with solutions that include:

  • A roadmap to build secure and resilient cloud-based applications and infrastructure
  • A three-phased approach to mature cloud security operations
  • Cutting-edge secure cloud design patterns
  • A list of native cloud features to use, from networking and identity management to application security and serverless architectures


This symposium is designed for:

  • CISOs – technical and managerial
  • Security architects
  • Security operations personnel

This event is for IANS clients and invited guests - there is no vendor sponsorship or presence.

2019 Rochester Symposium Facilitators


Mike Rothman

IANS Faculty
Mike has been in the information security industry for over 10 years. He is currently President and Analyst at Securosis, a firm exclusively focused on information security and research analysis. He started Security Incite in 2006 to provide the "voice of reason" in what was considered an overhyped, yet underwhelming security industry. After a brief detour as SVP, Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer at eIQNetworks, Mike joined Securosis at the start of 2010 with a "rejuvenated cynicism" about security. In 2007, Mike published "The Pragmatic CSO" to introduce technically oriented security professionals to the nuances of what is required to become a senior security professional. Mike graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering.
