Information Protection in Cloud Services
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Today’s economy is clearly driven by data. The most successful companies are those that can use this data to create useful information that enables them to get closer to their customers, to create new products and be more efficient. Cloud services are a key enabler in this, they allow the capture, storage, and exploitation of vast amounts of data without the need for capital expenditure. They enable the rapid development and deployment of new applications as well as the modernization of existing one.
However, these benefits come with some risks and challenges. While the major CSPs (Cloud Service Providers) go to great lengths to secure the infrastructure of their environments it has become clear that many of the cloud security challenges lie with the customers’ own use of these services. An additional concern is the risk of government interference in the operation of the service or demands for access to the data it holds. This concern was recently rekindled with the EU Court of Justice Ruling on the EU-US Privacy Shield.

IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
