Join us for an exclusive event in Manchester on Thursday, 22 June, where we will showcase how Lacework, AWS, and CDW can help your organisation achieve digital acceleration while mitigating cybersecurity risks

Today’s key “information security” principles and frameworks still mostly derive from military defence concepts which are more and more bypassed by technology mega trends like Cloud and DevOps. Cyber Security has to catch up, and not fall behind by hiding behind compliance. Andy Schneider, Field CISO EMEA of Lacework and Cyber Security Advisor, will talk about the “not-being-hacked” principle which is still compliant, yet more cost effective, ready for DevOps and the Cloud, and certainly far beyond boring.

CDW are the leading AWS Marketplace partner, providing our customers with streamlined procurement, spending commitment draw down and simple, secure deployment of security solutions
