Virtual Roundtable and Whisky Masterclass on Securing your Cloud Transformation (GMT)

In the last year, and partly in response to Covid-19, we have seen a dramatic acceleration in digital transformation and the consequent migration of large volumes of data from On-Prem to the Cloud.

At this roundtable, we start with the assumption that adoption of cloud services is only going to increase as companies continue to seek a competitive advantage through innovation. The question is: how should companies not only accelerate their rate of transformation but do so securely?

Good examples of the kind of questions, we might expect to answer include:

>  What role can CISOs and cyber professionals play to accelerate cloud transformation and encourage innovation, without increasing security risk? And do we think the recent Covid-driven, rush to the cloud is likely to result in a flurry of breaches in 2021?
>  How should we monitor APIs from an access and usage perspective, understand the risk that APIs present and what data points do we need to tighten API security, particularly with cloud-based applications?
>  Has the risk of malicious insider threats substantially increased, as a result of widespread redundancies, employment uncertainty, and work-from-home-stress, and if so, how can we best protect our data in the cloud from malicious insiders?
>  How should we develop and test incident response plans in the cloud, where we only have limited control and visibility over the infrastructure, on which we are dependent? Is a Hybrid Cloud strategy a solution to improve security?
>  How do we develop a formal cloud governance practice to improve visibility, compliance and business continuity, and avoid an out-of-control, sprawling cloud architecture?
