Steve Durbin, Global Vice President, Information Security Forum
Synopsis: Organisations can’t avoid using the cloud. With surveys reporting that 90% of organisations achieve projected savings and 80% increase their competitive advantage, as one tech writer put it, “the cloud is coming to your business, like it or not”. But with cloud systems come inherent challenges. These are further complicated as data subject to privacy regulation inevitably moves into the cloud. This webinar explains why data privacy in the cloud is a business issue. It provides an overview of privacy as a concept, explains personally identifiable information (PII), along with the demands typically placed on organisations by privacy regulations and de-mystifies the complexity of cloud-based systems and their inherent risks. The webinar maps out how you can manage the risk of using cloud services for private data – whatever stage you are at – based on current efforts to formulate good practice at leading ISF Member organisations around the world. It offers independent guidance on simplifying the complexity of cloud-based systems and their inherent risks, providing insight into how organisations can develop the necessary privacy safeguards and good practice guidelines to achieve privacy compliance when using such systems.
