Cloud Security Alliance APAC Virtual Summit

Track: Day 2 – Security Paradigm (Zero Trust)

Cloud technologies and traditional security processes are as bad a match as stripes and polka dots. They simply aren’t built to mix well together. As companies adopt cloud technologies, security teams are scrambling to apply what they know to this new way of doing business. But they’re quickly realizing how different an on-prem mindset is from one that’s geared to the cloud. Sessions on this day will define ways you can effectively shift your security paradigm so it’s suited to a cloud-defined world.
