There’s a cloud security hero in all of us. There has to be, because there aren’t enough “experts” in the world to secure everyone’s cloud. Introducing Cloud Tales, a monthly event where we sit down with a cloud hero and discuss their journey in the quest to securing their cloud environments. No slides, no agenda, just some stories from practitioners and leaders alike that covers some of their conquests and challenges along the way.
