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 designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
