Data Center Compliance Fundamentals Series

We all play a role in information security. With ever-increasing frequency, the folks that manage systems, storage, networks, containers, and the cloud are tasked with turning a security directive into a practical solution.

But where do we start? What are solutions that address many of the common security challenges?

From ISO 27k to microsegmentation – the hybrid data center to Kubernetes, we’ll provide attendees with actionable best practices and experienced insights around how to turn a policy into a practical solution.

101: Why ISO 27k Matters

With every passing day, more organizations are compelled to comply with basic “common sense” security processes, procedures & protocols. Sometimes, this pressure comes from regulatory governance, other times, it is a prerequisite to doing business with companies that themselves are regulated.

But where does the process start? What is a standard that’s recognized across industries which will lend credibility to the claim that “we can be trusted with your digital information?”.

That standard is the ISO 27000 suite. In this workshop, we’ll cover the various standards that comprise ISO 27k, why they matter, the certification process, and how you can begin your journey towards compliance.

Course length: 3 hours

Here’s what you can expect to learn:

  • Gain a strong understanding of the importance of ISO 27k.
