Cloud Security and Risk Management: Back to Basics


Why do we need to get back to basics? Much time and effort is spent worrying about how to secure the cloud, when, realistically speaking, the security of the cloud is still uncertain. Security is the number one reason why many companies continue to avoid the cloud, but anecdotally and statistically speaking, the cloud is not any greater of a threat than enterprise networks. In fact, they may be more safe.

That said, the approach to cloud security should be founded using the same basic principles that are used by CISOs across the globe: A risk-based approach; layered security; flexibility across many platforms, and with redundancies built in. This virtual conference will take a fresh look at cloud security from these perspectives.

Join us on December 4TH from 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM ET (UTC–4) to:
