Everybody seems to be in the cloud or moving to the cloud, but who is really doing it the right way? What is the right way? More importantly, how is security being managed in the cloud?

Though 70% of companies have at least a portion of their computing infrastructure already in the cloud, four in 10 IT decision makers (40%) are concerned that they cannot keep pace with cloud technology’s evolution and demands.

Although discussions around cloud have intensified, considerations around cloud security are still a relatively new area for many companies. The implications of moving to the cloud with or without a well-defined strategy are being felt today; and with so many data leaks being attributed to misconfigured cloud databases, or through poor credential management, companies are right to be worried.

Given the current rate of digital change, every organization across every industry should be thinking about the cloud, migrating to the cloud and of course, security, however, one issue that continues to arise is the gap between organizations’ perceived security strength and their actual security strength. With over 4,000 ransomware attacks happening every day, it’s no wonder that security is one of the top concerns and priorities for CIOs in 2019.

Join us for this invitation-only networking opportunity with your peers to discuss best practices that IT executives are implementing to fully maximize the value of the cloud while strengthening security and maintaining control of costs.
