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.
Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
