Many companies are telling that they tend to start with a “private” cloud instead of going to the “public” cloud. Besides the question whether hybrid IT environments aren’t reality today, this panel will discuss the specific security risks of internal clouds, especially around the changes from physical to virtual environments, but as well with respect to more loosely coupled IT environments and their new threats – which are in fact not that new, given that we have some experience on loosely coupled environments from SOA.
As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
