WHAT: IMDS: The Gatekeeper to Your Cloud Castles (And How to Keep the Dragons Out)
Most of us know IMDS as a tool for seamlessly maintaining and supplying credentials for applications running on instances to access resources in cloud environments. This talk will take a deep dive into the protections offered by different cloud service providers for IMDS and demonstrate how these mechanisms could spell the difference between a critical and non-critical vulnerability.

A Year of NO: building organizational IAM guardrail policies that work
Organizational policies are a key part of every organization’s cloud IAM strategy. This talk will explore how to build, test, and deploy effective organizational policies for multi-cloud environments, and how to implement mechanisms to detect violations.

Threat intelligence in the age of cloud
Threat Intelligence is one of the most important inputs when investigating breaches, and enables faster, better informed security decisions. This talk will highlight the challenges of building good threat intel in a cloud-based world and present a model for evaluating threat intelligence feeds, mapping the units of threat intelligence that are uniquely relevant to the cloud and establishing channels for intelligence sharing.
