The word “Cloud” is no longer a buzzword. The very idea of cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services, from applications to storage and processing power, typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis.
As opposed to companies owning their own computing infrastructure or data centers, companies can rent access to anything from applications to storage from a cloud service provider. For example, your favourite movies and series provider- Netflix relies on cloud computing services.
But, as with any great stride forward, there must be a varying degree of drawbacks. No progress can be called progress without hitches. The number one hitch here being security. Cloud security, consists of a set of policies, controls, procedures and technologies that work together to protect cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure.
In what way can the security infrastructure extend to meet the requirements of the fast growing, and constantly changing cloud infrastructure, and in what way can we secure seamless cloud operations whilst also deliberating on the future of cloud with regards to security?
Questions like these, and more will be answered on the 22nd and 23rd of October at the virtual summit. As organizations rapidly adopt cloud networks, due to flexibility, scalability, cost effectiveness and more, security needs to be at the front and centre. It is 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 cyber security and Cloud 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.
Join the information security and cloud industry experts as they discuss strategies, tools and solutions to ensure your organisation is secure.
