Cloud computing is taking the world by storm for a very good reason. It’s the most cost-effective and agile way for organizations of all sizes to access the advanced, transformational computing services and technologies needed to compete in the new digital marketplace. Security needs to be adaptable and flexible enough to enable that transformation.
This invitation-only event will bring together cybersecurity executives to discuss the current climate of cloud adoption euphoria and the potential security risks involved. We will explore how to raise awareness of cloud related risks and we will examine the pitfalls and potential ramifications. We will also get an insight on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) perspective on the cyber crime landscape.
The briefing is designed to be an interactive session and an opportunity to share experiences and network with peers.
