About this talk

Businesses are continuing to outsource to cloud at a rapid rate enabling them to achieve incredible financial and operational benefits. It’s the never-ending story for CIOs everywhere: as your enterprise demands more of IT, you demand more from your IT infrastructure. New requirements, services, applications and technologies are pushing infrastructure to the limit. And leaders need to respond faster and with fewer resources than ever before. However, smart IT decision makers know to proceed with caution when it comes to the transition of secure services from inside their four walls to a cloud provider’s data center – and for good reason. If not properly configured, the move could not only rob you of the benefits of a cloud-hosted environment, your business could make headlines for all of the wrong reasons. If security is important to you, but you’re unsure how to navigate the litany of products and services available today, get started by understanding what questions to ask and what to listen for. In this webinar we’ll take a look at 3 key considerations for securing data in the cloud: 1.What cloud security technologies exist and how do they differ from traditional security? 2.Who is responsible for the security of cloud-hosted data and applications? 3.How does the cloud impact common compliance programs and regulations like SOC, PCI, & HIPAA?
