Over the last years, many customers have had to deal with cyber attacks targeted at intellectual property. We have entered a new phase in which criminals unleash destructive attacks, rendering IT environments unusable and effectively halting business. Consumerization of IT and the cloud add inherent tension and security implications to this new reality. How can one deal with data that moves in and out of your datacenters, to unmanaged devices and cloud services not directly under your control? How can you create a cost efficient architecture and plan for prevention, detection, and recovery in a time where cloud and consumerization of IT are high on every CxO's agenda? The presenters of this session have been on the Targeted Attack frontline with enterprise customers over the last years. They explain the threats of targeted attacks and share an architecture model using a data classification model, as well as their field experiences and services you can leverage to deal with prevention, detection and recovery.
When building solutions for the Cloud it is critical to understand that every architecture decision has even more impacts than before as a bad code might get you out of business. For this reason in this session we will be focusing on:
Breaking down the baseline concepts of Cloud design
Defining the critical considerations which we should have when designing new Cloud solutions
Looking at Architectural Patterns which can help us succeed in this space, like Microservices, CQRS and Event Sourcing
Looking at real life examples of Azure Cloud Architectures, the trade-offs and results
Lessons Learned Building Azure Solutions
The key goal of this session is to create awareness of what considerations, architectural patterns and trade-offs should be done in order to have successful Cloud solutions and even more specific to Azure solutions.
