The Security SIG Presents...
Security In The Cloud
Return on Security, or Crossing Your Fingers?
Cloud migrations and business initiatives are aligning rapidly, across all industries. You can’t escape the reminders that if you aren’t already in the cloud, you probably will be. Soon. In this environment, it can be alarming how little attention is drawn to security once you get to the cloud. Knowing - and understanding - the risks associated with accessing computer resources in the cloud is critical to any successful migration strategy. This panel discussion will bring sense to the landscape, addressing such questions as:
• Is the cloud really for everyone?
• What ARE the risks?
• What are the best ways to mitigate those risks?
• Are they very different from traditional colocation risks?
• What about public vs. private vs. hybrid?
• What stays, what goes, and how are those decisions made?
• How do these risks impact the compliance environment?
• Where do people and change management fit in?
Please join the Security SIG, and expert panelists representing a range of perspectives in the cloud conversation, as they share best practices and common pitfalls, and uncover answers to questions you never knew you should be considering.
