We all know the cloud is here to stay. Nothing short of a zombie apocalypse or nuclear Armageddon is going to slow down the steady momentum of cloud adoption. We’ve all come to recognize the benefits of the cloud: agility, economic value, and backup/recovery. Trying to manage security and compliance in the use of cloud platforms and applications, however, can drive stress and frustration into already overworked security teams.

Cloud boasts a secure, disaster proof option for companies to store their data offsite with access to that data from practically anywhere. So, who’s fault is it when the data is compromised? What if your information is stolen from the cloud because another user’s data was at fault? At the end of the day, isn’t the cloud just someone else’s computer?

Join our expert panel as we dive into these questions and discuss:

•  CASBs
•  Hybrid cloud
•  Cloud attack vectors
•  Identifying cloud security controls and design framework
•  Working with multiple cloud platforms

Be sure to submit your questions for our panelists when you register. We will try to keep our panel busy answering your questions!
