Course Outline

Session 1 - 9AM to 12PM

Cloud-Native Application Security Considerations

Presentation Outline:

Cloud-Native technologies and tools such as Microservices, Containers, and Kubernetes have emerged as the major virtualization approaches. Package these cloud native microservices to create, deploy and manage for both on-prem and cloud environments. Cloud-Native technologies bring a wealth of benefits; however, the task of securing your cloud-native environment is challenging.

This Cloud-Native security considerations presentation deals with a practical view of Kubernetes security, and vulnerability management tools to improve cloud native infrastructure security.

This overview defines a model for thinking about Kubernetes security in the context of Cloud Native Security with 4Cs (Cloud, Cluster, Container, and Code). Each layer of the Cloud Native security model builds upon the next outermost layer. The Code layer benefits from strong base (Cloud, Cluster, Container) security layers and so on.

This presentation intends to provide organizations and their technical leadership with a clear understanding of cloud native security, its incorporation in their lifecycle processes, and considerations for determining the most appropriate application thereof.

The following objectives will be covered:

  • Cloud-Native applications and development methodologies - Overview
  • Why we need a security and observability strategy for cloud native applications
  • Understand key concepts behind the security and observability approaches
  • Explore the technology choices available to support this strategy
  • Discover how to share security responsibilities across multiple teams or roles
  • How to architect Kubernetes security and observability for multi-cloud and hybrid environments
  • Instructor-led Demo
  • Q&A


  • A basic understanding of software development
  • Previous exposure to containers and containerization - in particular, docker

Session 2 - 1PM to 4PM

Establishing a IPv6 Cybersecurity Defense Architecture

Presentation Outline:

A 3 hour practical course on establishing and maintaining an IPv6 Cybersecurity Defense in Depth architecture for small, medium and large private and public enterprises.

The course will contain US Government aspects of both US Civilian and Department of Defense architecture elements, including but not limited to Continuous Diagnostic and Monitoring (CDM) elements and Trusted Internet Computing (TIC).

There is no cost to participation in the workshop (Maximum of 30 participants).
