Security Benefits of Cloud Solutions
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Monday, September 04, 2017 TIME: 2:00pm CEST
While organizations are becoming increasingly eager to embrace the cloud for multiple business benefits, for CISOs and CIOs these efforts bring new challenges to understand and evaluate security and privacy impacts by introducing cloud solutions to their enterprises. Adopting cloud services can dramatically improve flexibility and scalability of critical business applications, reduce time-to-market for new products and even unlock completely new business models.
However, many organizations feel uneasy about bringing their intellectual property, financial data or personally identifiable information of their customers to the cloud, and rightfully so. Ensuring full visibility and consistent protection of information stored in an infrastructure owned and managed by a third party is a massive challenge further complicated by tight compliance regulations. Starting next year, the cost of a mistake will become extremely high with severe penalties of up to 4% of worldwide turnover introduced by the EU GDPR.
This KuppingerCole webinar will address the following topics:
- What benefits can a cloud solution add to your existing security landscape;
- How could you integrate your environment securely with a cloud platform;
- Which compliance regulations should the cloud abide to;
Join Dr. Barbara Mandl, Senior Vice President for Business Development at KuppingerCole, to learn about possible benefits a cloud solution may add to your existing security landscape. Hopefully this webinar and KuppingerCole’s upcoming Executive Dinner series will inspire you to novel approaches for solving your cloud challenges.
