How will cloud security notification streams such as Azure Security Center, Oracle Cloud Guard, IBM Cloud Security Alert, AWS Security Command Center et al support CSNF? What are the consumption models envisioned and value to your cybersecurity operations? Will CSNF pave the way for corporations to operationalize cloud security and enable Cloud Security Posture Management? In this session we dive into the new world of multi-cloud security enabled by CSNF.
Speakers:

Cloud Security is new to most SOCs. SOC teams are optimized for on-prem threat hunting, incidence response etc. As more workloads move to SaaS/IaaS/PaaS how do SOC teams integrate and operationalize cloud security?

There is much discussion around zero-trust as the new security model to protect workloads in the post perimeter security remote workforce world. But how does zero-trust work? How is network segmentation automated and policy enforced? Is there a new model that improves zero-trust configuration, orchestration and automation via policy as code. This roundtable discussion session is exclusive for IT teams and is to be a requirements gathering exercise. No slides, just sharing best practices and challenges in a safe environment led by ONUG board members and thought leader. Come to learn from your peers and add your requirements.
Speakers:

What are the best practices to assure your cloud operational teams are most efficient? As cloud consumption grows linearly, do cloud emitters/notifications/alerts, etc. grow exponentially?

Speakers:
Head of Enterprise Technology Services (Infrastructure)
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Tsvi has over 25 years of technology and operations experience mostly in financial services, media and telecom and is known across the industry for his technology leadership, innovation and business acumen.

As CTO of Morgan Stanley’s shared services (infrastructure & data) since early 2012, Tsvi has been responsible for transforming the bank into a modern, efficient and effective organization.

He is leading the divisional Agile & DevOps transformation and the changes to the ways of work in technology, workforce strategy and front-to-back initiative.

He also completed a hundreds of million net cost reduction initiative while productivity and satisfaction improved.

Working collaboratively with the leaders of business technology, Tsvi led the creation and implementation of Morgan Stanley’s multi-year strategy and target state architecture along with the standards, guidelines, blueprints and use patterns that made it actionable to the engineering and development communities, broke the silo mentality and aggressively reduced technology debt.

Tsvi’s work helped position the bank as a leader in algorithmic trading/ ultra-low latency, migration to public cloud and containers, AI & machine learning, cyber security, mainframe optimization, data center consolidation, modern client experience, global network and near-fault tolerant operations.

Tsvi also oversaw the governance and regulatory compliance work with internal and external auditors and examiners.

Tsvi is the winner of the Einstein Award for technology excellence and known as a provider of strategic thought leadership and excellence in execution and transformation.
His experience ranges from traditional (server, storage, networks, operations, mainframes) to modern (public and private cloud, containers, cyber security) infrastructure as well as application development and Agile/DevOps transformation, with the focus on creating business value.

Greatest achievements are rooted from understanding and enabling the business to deliver both existing and new offerings in a combination of efficiency (cost), delivery focus (execution) and future-proofing (innovation).

As we celebrate the 10th year of ONUG, we look toward the future of the IT organization. What will IT look like in the future? IT organizations are structured like the supplier side of the industry; that is, it’s a mirror image of the vendor landscape (compute, storage, networking, applications, security, ...). Will the boundary between IT and business units disappear as corporate brands become ever more digital? Or will IT be populated with architects and designers as operations become automated and AI driven?
Speakers:

Multi-cloud is complex. These ONUG companies share their multi-cloud journey from design and build to operational models. What worked and where are the challenges? Why are the challenges worth overcoming? How does multi-cloud benefit the developer's ability to create greater business value? No matter where you are on your multi-cloud journey, you're learning something new that you can take back to your company by attending this session.
