About this talk

Today’s economy is driven by data and the most successful companies are those that can use data to get closer to their customers, create new products and operate more efficiently. Cloud services are a key enabler in this. They allow the capture, storage and use of vast amounts of data. They enable the rapid development and deployment of new applications as well as the modernization of existing ones. Concerns over Risk & Compliance Are Slowing Adoption However, the use of these services causes concerns over risk and compliance and these are slowing the adoption of cloud services. While organizations understand how their internal controls meet their compliance obligations the same is not true for the use of cloud services. It is also clear that many of the security incidents result from the customer’s own use of these services. For example, security and compliance are often outside the skills of DevOps teams or are overlooked and this can lead to the existence of critical vulnerabilities that can be exploited. An additional concern is the risk of government interference in the operation of the service or demands for access to the data. Information Protection for the Hybrid Cloud To benefit from the opportunities provided by cloud services it is essential that organizations fully understand their responsibilities, and these are centered around access to data. The customer is always responsible for ensuring that their obligations around this access are met and that their controls for this are effective. This means taking a data-centric approach to cloud security and compliance. This webinar will highlight: - The challenges around security and compliance in today’s hybrid IT environment - The information protection lifecycle and how this is applied in the hybrid cloud - Why you need to control access and manage how your data is encrypted - What else you need to take care of
