IBM Partners With CIO EA For Cloud And Security Forum

Breakthrough technological advances to modern organisations are more than just a byproduct created through the advent of cloud computing. The very notion of cloud computing has evolved at a breakneck speed and, in many organisations, is now entwined with the complex technological landscape that supports critical daily operations.

This ever-expanding cloud environment gives rise to new types of risk. Business and security leaders already face many challenges in protecting their existing IT environment. They must now also find ways to securely use multiple cloud services, supported applications and underlying technical infrastructure.

This begs the question, as organisations rapidly adopt cloud networks, due to flexibility, scalability, cost-effectiveness and more, security needs to be at the front and centre. In what way can security patch up the holes in cloud operations? Answers to questions like these and more will be available at the CIO EA virtual Cloud and security summit, happening on the 22nd and 23rd of October.

When it comes to progress, the application of progress, intelligence, reason, can improve business, society and the human condition. In the span of a century, IBM has evolved from a small business that made scales, time clocks and tabulating machines to a globally integrated enterprise with more than 400,000 employees and a strong vision for the future.

With that in mind, it is no mystery as to why IBM has decided to play a part in the upcoming Cloud and Security Summit.

It is indeed against this background that the virtual Cloud & Security Forum 2020 is designed to assist in driving an impartial and informed dialogue in the rapidly evolving information security industry.

Having continued to create an environment for making new connections, the summit with visionary speakers at the nexus of new technologies and cybersecurity solutions purposes to share their insights and demonstrate their ability to safeguard customer data.

From new applications being consistently added to networks to employees taking access control shortcuts and credentials being compromised, it is clear that there are endless vulnerabilities to detect and manage.
