Securing Your Cloud Services – Clouds Can Rain, Bring an Umbrella

Are your marketing and development teams recommending moving into the Cloud to increase efficiency, provide additional services to customers, and limit costs? Is moving your data and IT systems into the Cloud really the best solution for your organization?

This Cloud security seminar will provide an overview of the different cloud services available in the marketplace, discuss why your organization may want to consider moving into the Cloud, and then explain the main security risks involved with using the Cloud. Dan Gortze, Senior Manager of Information Security at Cumberland Farms, will discuss what kinds of data should and shouldn’t be committed to the Cloud and why, and shed some light on the gaps in cybersecurity that this migration can introduce into your organization. He will also offer some recommendations on meaningful questions you can ask your Cloud provider before purchasing their services or migrating your data, and help you understand the roles and responsibilities between you and your Cloud provider. In addition, this non-technical and highly-interactive seminar will discuss privacy protection and legal compliance issues associated with cloud computing.
