Leveraging a Unified Cloud Approach to Defend Against Cyber Threats

Jeff Worthington


Jeff Worthington

Executive Strategist, CrowdStrike

Colonel (Retired) Jeff Worthington, Executive Strategist at CrowdStrike where he provides strategic advisory services related to enterprise cybersecurity solutions for Public Sector organizations across Federal, State and Local, Higher Education and Healthcare. Prior to joining CrowdStrike, he served as the Chief Information Officer for the Joint Special Operations Command and Deputy Director of XVIII Airborne Corps’ Project Ridgway. This capped a career of uniformed federal service spanning 30 years installing, operating, maintaining and defending our Nation’s most vital information network across the globe. He has extensive experience leading cyber, IT, network and communications teams at all levels of military service across the DoD and within both conventional and Airborne Special Operations units from the foxhole to the White House. His leadership and executive operational experiences include Information Security, IT governance & strategy, network/systems operations, and implementation/integration of robust enterprise systems and services.

The cyber threat landscape is unpredictable, growing in sophistication and increasing in their speed of attack. With tools like generative AI, they offer opportunities for the defender and lower the barrier of entry for the adversary. Combine that with organizations adopting cloud technologies to take advantage of the computing power and capability of “as a Service” capabilities offered and our security environment grows even more complex.  We will explore what we see adversaries taking advantage of and how your security teams can proactively defend against that.  And, since they are extensions of your on-premise environments, how you can better defend and support your cloud initiatives and articulate risk to the board and supervisors.
