Some of the biggest issues facing enterprises moving to the public cloud are security and compliance. The public cloud may have security built into it, but you still need to build it into your applications, especially if you need to be compliant with regulations like SOC 2, PCI DSS, SOX and HIPAA or are working in several different regulatory jurisdictions.
Even if your company is not subject to regulatory requirements, these frameworks serve as great starting guidelines to achieve a strong security posture. These standards mandate that security operations adequately protect customer information, but protecting today’s complex IT infrastructure is increasingly a challenge.
Join 2nd Watch, Alert Logic and SCOR compliance and security solution experts for a live webinar to learn how to not only meet compliance requirements, but build out a top-notch security practice for your organization.
During the webinar, we will discuss:
