Synopsis and overview of the session
Today, most organizations aren’t merely in the cloud—they’re in many clouds (PaaS, IaaS), and their end users regularly consume dozens, or even hundreds, of different SaaS applications. The great cloud migration is enabling the successes of increased remote working and is propelling a renewed embrace of digital transformation initiatives.
Yet, more clouds can also mean more challenges. In addition to the fundamental cloud security issues, there’s the additional complexity and interoperability issues arising from siloed identity stores, native toolsets, and conflicting shared responsibility models between cloud providers. This creates an an expanded attack surface that is attractive to threat actors seeking ways into your environment.
The identity challenge is the most important security problem for organizations to solve across cloud and on-premises environments. This is best accomplished by standardizing the management and security controls across the entire IT ecosystem.
Focus Network, in partnership with BeyondTrust, will bring IT Security Leaders from across the Philippines to join a group discussion with BeyondTrust Cybersecurity experts, Ajay Kumar and Aileen Eway. Connecting live with fellow members of the group who themselves are facing the most pressing cloud security risks, and who are equally interested in knowledge sharing and developing best practice standards.
