More and more organisations are turning to cloud computing to solve their biggest technology and business challenges. By this stage, most of us are aware of the many benefits cloud has to offer: lower hardware and IT costs, ease of management and increased agility, to name a few. Yet when it comes to security, cloud is not a silver bullet. In fact, according to the Cloud Security Alliance, security is cited as the number one barrier to adoption of cloud services among organisations.
During this webcast, Mark Wood, Director of Product Management at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss some of the prevalent security risks which exist when moving to the cloud and how this affects the traditional approach to security.
This webcast will address the following key themes:
•The security impact of different cloud models and minimising risk in a multi-tenant environment
•Sharing the security burden and establishing an effective relationship with your cloud provider.
•Staying one step ahead of the evolving compliance landscape.
