Avoid the Iceberg in the Sky: Don't Let the Cloud Sink Your Security Program

Thursday, April 12 | 11:00AM–12:00PM ET | Maryland Ballroom D, Fifth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Ahoy, matey! Whether you have been tasked with a cloud-first approach to new deployments or are evaluating the cloud for services on a case-by-case basis, you don't have to look hard through your looking glass to find SOMETHINGaaS on the horizon. Don't let the cloud be the iceberg that sinks your security program. We're all anchors away in the same boat as we learn to adapt our security programs to stay afloat in these uncharted waters. Together, we will examine how our security programs can evolve to protect our precious treasure before the buccaneers can overtake our ship.

Outcomes: Understand how protecting information resources in the cloud differs from what has traditionally been done on premises * Explore sample cloud technologies available to protect the various flavors of xaaS resources you may need to support and protect * Chart a plan to adapt your security program, policies, and controls to support ongoing adoption of cloud services
