About this talk

As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that the technology sector in general – and cloud services in particular – has been instrumental in helping the world cope with the enormity of the task. It has provided the advanced medical research at various stages; helped instrument public health, officials, and the general public, and provided the foundation of ongoing commerce, communication and entertainment. For those looking into cloud adoption, the pandemic merely accelerated what has been a long-term broad adoption of cloud environments, including multicloud and hybrid deployments. There are numerous benefits to this adoption: faster time to value and time to market, as well as the ability to experiment and quickly leverage elasticity and resiliency. That said, the benefits of cloud come with significant new security challenges for organizations. They need to understand how responsibilities are shared between provider and customer, how the threat models change, how internal stakeholders respond to cloud, and much more. Throughout all this, it is useful to get a sense of how others are handling these issues. Just how widespread is multicloud? What are the operational challenges of managing security across multiple clouds? Is all this cloud transformation as hard as it seems? How do organizations secure data in cloud? Which technologies and best practices are most effective in securing data in the cloud? This webinar delves into these and other trends in cloud security and reviews key findings in the 2021 Thales Cloud Security Study, which is based on data from a global survey of more than 2,600 IT and security professionals from around world.
