Evident.io CEO Tim Prendergast to Deliver Keynote Speech at (ISC)2 SecureSeattle

Evident.io Will Also Support Other Upcoming Events for (ISC)2

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwired - March 14, 2016) - Evident.io, the leading provider of security solutions and compliance automation for public cloud infrastructure deployments, announced today that cofounder and CEO Tim Prendergast will serve as the keynote speaker on Tuesday, March 15 for (ISC)2 SecureSeattle, a professional development conference and networking event with a focus on Security in the Cloud and sponsored by Evident.io and (ISC)2.

Prendergast will deliver the keynote session on the topic of Developing a Rugged DevOps Approach to Cloud Security, which will cover issues including:

  • Revamping processes to gain efficiencies in security operations
  • Integrating security into the continuous development and deployment process
  • Implementing security and compliance automation
  • Operationalizing alerts and remediation efforts to achieve an agile security posture

"Your operational tools deliver continuous monitoring and alerting -- so why doesn't your security suite?" said Prendergast. "My presentation will help the attendees at SecureSeattle understand why it's important to stop thinking about security as a separate step in a launch, and learn how they can better prepare their public cloud workloads against attacks by implementing continuous security into every part of their development and deployment processes."

SecureSeattle 2016 will take place on March 15, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Hilton Seattle Downtown. Conference fees are $49 for (ISC)2 members and $99 for non-members. The conference agenda includes sessions on topics such as reducing security risks for IaaS/SaaS/PaaS, defending a modern elastic cloud infrastructure, and automating security in the cloud against vulnerabilities.

In addition to the (ISC)2 SecureSeattle conference, Evident.io will also be sponsoring two upcoming (ISC)2 events in 2016: 

"Evident.io is pleased to be a primary sponsor of these (ISC)2 events because of the organization's commitment to both cloud security and professional development, as exemplified by their work with the Cloud Security Alliance to offer the CCSP (Certified Cloud Security Professional), the first cloud security professional certification," Prendergast said.

"As part of our company's mission to continuously improve the standards for cloud security, we are proud to partner with (ISC)2 and support their efforts to provide career education and certification for information security professionals. (ISC)2 is helping to elevate the level of expertise and professionalism throughout the security field, and we're grateful to be part of these informative events where security professionals can obtain the skills they need to keep their organizations secure."
