ISSA Sacramento Chapter Meeting, Friday, 10/15/2021, 11:30a-1:00p

Primary tabs

We had to cancel our plans to offer a hybrid meeting (in-person and on-line) this month, and will once again offer an entirely on-line meeting. (Fingers crossed for next month.)

Location: Zoom. Meeting details will be emailed to everyone who registers for the meeting (see below) at least an hour before the meeting starts at 11:30am PDT. (If you register later than 10:30am the day of the meeting, or fail to register at all, you may not get the zoom meeting details, so be sure to register!)

Speaker: Jeff Cooper

Topic: Cloud Mistakes to Avoid

Description: Many cloud-based security incidents are not due to complex attacks circumventing and exploiting layers of defense. Instead they are a result of cloud customers not applying basic cloud controls. In many cases, vendor provided cloud services are not secure by default (e.g. a newly created S3 bucket is not encrypted by default, a default cloud network is open and not configured for least privilege).

Speaker Bio: Jeff Cooper has 25 years IT experience with a focus on Cloud Technologies and Security over the past 6 years. Jeff has held a variety of IT roles with the US Navy, Defense Contracting, Abbott (Healthcare and Life Sciences) and currently at Juniper Networks (Internet / Communications). He has multiple security certifications including CISSP, CCSP, AWS Security Specialty, and Azure Security Engineer. Jeff and his family live in Temecula California. When he’s not geeking out on technology, he enjoys running, biking, and playing guitar. You can connect with Jeff on LinkedIn:
