The rush to work from home has clearly accelerated the movement of IT workloads to the cloud. This is true across the entire spectrum of IaaS and SaaS-based applications. What better way for most organizations to improve their ‘IT-abilities’ such as reliability, availability and scalability?
However, as is often the case, security architectures are lagging behind. How do we know this? One clear tell of this lag is the growth in VPN usage at many organizations and the need to ‘trombone’ even cloud-destined traffic through the corporate VPN purely for visibility and security control purposes.
This can’t be the ultimate way forward, but the movement of security controls to the cloud is also accelerating. How can organizations make this transition without dropping the security ball?
In this webinar, a panel of security experts will discuss:
- The security impacts of hybrid working
- How cyber-criminals have pivoted their attacks
- How to leverage cloud transition to improve your security abilities
- What cloud security of the rapidly approaching future looks like
More threats, more systems to protect, more tools to deploy and more people to manage – the CISO’s job continues to get more complicated, and that’s not including their responsibilities at the senior management table.
Turning myriad bits and bytes into easily digestible and actionable insights for corporate leadership is a tremendous challenge for today’s CISO – a challenge that requires new strategies and processes to overcome.
In this webinar, a panel of security experts will discuss how cybersecurity program management transforms today’s back-office CISOs into next-generation corporate leaders, outlining key steps to evolve your program to quickly and accurately assess cyber-preparedness and successfully communicate results and requirements in the boardroom.
Join this webinar to learn how to:
• Implement an enterprise-wide library of threats, risks and controls for all cybersecurity domains, business continuity and compliance functions
