This presentation will discuss multiple options (with strengths and weaknesses) for sensing network behavior in hybrid clouds. A hybrid cloud is an environment that mixes both off-premises and on-premises computing resources. The presentation will cover cloud vendor options, third-party vendor options, and organization-deployed options.

Attendees will learn about the range of cloud sensing options and how these might be both effective and limited in a hybrid cloud environment. This will allow attendees to be more intelligent consumers of cloud services while maintaining network situational awareness.

The only person to make 15 consecutive appearances at FloCon, Tim Shimeall is the Senior Situational Awareness Analyst of the CERT Program at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). Shimeall is responsible for the development of methods to support decision-making in security at and above the enterprise level, including the identification of useful data collection. Of particular interest are methods that affect defended systems and malicious software that are effective despite common defenses. He continues to be an active instructor on a variety of topics in software engineering, information warfare, and security and supervised in excess of 35 MS theses and many doctoral theses.
