Christmas Social Drinks + Professional Development Session - Practical Security Advice for the Cloud

Practical Security Advice for the Cloud

The increase in maturity of cloud offerings has transformed the socio-economic and technological landscape. The ability to access organizational information resources on any device, anywhere and anytime has opened a world of collaboration opportunities that were previously inconceivable. Pragmatic risk-based and data-centric security approaches can enable efficient use of cloud resources and maximize their effectiveness.  

This session will discuss security risks resulting from cloud computing and practical steps to address them. Rather than being a purely theoretical exercise, the session will delve into real-life use cases and discuss security controls encompassing Cloud Access Security Brokers, Information Rights Management, Vendor Ratings and Data Loss Prevention.
