Customer-Managed Encryption Keys: Controlling Your Data’s Privacy in the Cloud

Businesses put a lot of trust in the cloud, believing that, as paying customers, they will enjoy total protection from hackers and law enforcement agencies trying to access their private data.

But the majority of cloud providers who encrypt data have full control over encryption keys and could – if required to – access and share the data. This is a risk many businesses are unaware of. It also means CISOs in industries handling very sensitive data cannot take advantage of the benefits of cloud technology, as their enterprise policies and regulatory compliance requirements prohibit them from having implementations where providers have full access to their data. Customer-managed encrypted keys (CMKs) offer a solution to this problem, putting the data owner in full control of the encryption being used within the cloud service regardless of where it is stored.

This combined panel & presentation session will explore how implementing CMKs will give customers back the control of their data as well as promoting cloud adoption. You will become familiar with cryptography systems available now that use CMKs to protect data held by cloud vendors, how they work, when it is necessary to implement, and how it can enable highly regulated industries to operate securely beyond the firewall.
