Managing risk and compliance when using cloud services
It is often the case that organizations overlook ingraining security best practices while adopting Cloud. Building an effective access governance program specifically targeted at Cloud services is vital to prevent misuse, protect against targeted attacks and address compliance mandates. Gaining visibility into aspects of “who has access to sensitive data” and “who has privileged access” is critical as organizations remain responsible for managing access to Cloud services and the data it holds.
In this KuppingerCole Webinar, you will hear about:
- How new technologies and cloud services are changing the risk landscape
- Why access governance and intelligence is critical to manage these risks
- Strategies to secure data on collaboration platforms
- Best practices to enforce security policies and controls for infrastructure services (IaaS)
- Achieving regulatory compliance in financially significant applications (SaaS)
In the first part of this webinar, Mike Small, Fellow Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe the changing risk landscape and how knowing who has access to what is a key requirement to managing risk. He will describe access governance in the context of cloud services and best practices to secure different types of cloud platforms.
In the second part, Amit Saha from Saviynt will describe their approach to Access Governance and Intelligence for cloud services and will explain how Saviynt offers an integrated platform to manage risks across data, applications and infrastructure.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
