The Role of Data-Centric Security in the Cloud
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Monday, September 28, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
As modern businesses across all verticals continue their rapid digitalization, the need to store, process and exchange data securely is becoming an essential factor for any company. However, this is particularly challenging for high-tech companies dealing with highly-sensitive R&D data.
Some verticals, such as pharmaceutical and chemical, are common targets of cyber espionage by criminals and other groups that are often supported by funding and cyber-attack expertise from nation states. Protecting intellectual property and associated personal data is crucial.
High-tech companies seeking to follow a cloud-first strategy to tap into the benefits of using cloud-based services, such as data exchange and collaboration platforms, need a comprehensive approach to information security that includes a capability to secure the data itself. Data-centric security is key to enabling companies to use modern cloud infrastructure without the risk of data compromise.
This KuppingerCole webinar will cover:
The benefits of a cloud-first strategy as well as the risks and mitigating factors
How to separate data from public cloud providers while still using their application workflows
Keeping full control of data with encryption and fragmentation
Storing sensitive data on-prem or in Software-Defined Storage (SDS) in way that is invisible to users
Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about how to follow a cloud-first strategy, how to measure cloud risk, and how to mitigate it. He will also discuss the role of information security, data access governance and data protection in the context of the cloud.
Dr. Bruno Quint, Director of Cloud Encryption at Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity and Robert Rudolph Product Marketing Manager at Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will discuss the challenges of moving to the cloud, particularly for pharmaceutical and chemical companies. They will provide insights into the R&S®Trusted Gate solution as well as discuss solution options and project examples.

Data is widely considered the “new oil" because data has great value and provides direct and secondary revenue streams. But, also like oil, data can leak from organizations that depend on it. Therefore, data security and the prevention of data leakage is imperative for business as well as regulatory compliance reasons.
