The secure cloud


As more and more organizations consider moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud, it is critical to understand the security risks and also the opportunities of cloud computing. It is now a nonnegotiable requirement for these organizations to develop and execute a comprehensive risk assessment framework as they upload valuable business information, mission critical applications and real-time business workflow and process into a cloud environment. At the same time, cloud services represent a new opportunity to re-architect and potentially even fortify corporate security. This webinar will examine the biggest cloud security risks, talk about how companies can comprehensively assess risk and ultimately create a more secure cloud IT environment.
