If you have lingering questions and concerns about the state of virtualization security, SANS is putting on just the conference for you.
SANS WhatWorks in Virtualization Security Summit takes place in August 17-18 at the Fairmont in Washington DC. Here’s a taste of the conference overview:
The SANS Virtualization Security Summit brings together industry leaders to help enterprises realize the enormous benefits of virtualization while addressing the new security challenges that it creates. You’ll discuss the latest processes and tools for securing your virtualized systems in open forums designed to bring you together with both industry experts and your peers facing the same day-to-day challenges. Since securing an enterprise doesn’t have a “one size fits all” solution, you’ll be able to get answers to your organization’s individual requirements in detailed Q&A sessions. If you’re considering deploying virtualization, or increasing your current deployment, vendor “shoot-outs” provide you with a unique opportunity to ask the hard questions to determine what tools will best fit your organization’s requirements.
SANS helpfully provides a topic breakdown in the form of questions like: “What are the economic and flexibility payoffs from going virtual? How can they be validated and quantified?” and “Which of the four leading virtual platforms provides the most security today? Which has the best roadmap for continued security improvement?”
The conference costs $1,495; early bird pricing is available until July 8, 2009. Courses following the summit will set you back another $2,250.
