What's On

Cloud adoption is gradually increasing during recent years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which accelerates the rate of cloud migration among businesses. Come along with all the productivity and convenience that cloud computing brought, organizations also face continuously security challenges as the cloud security architecture is different from the on-prem security architecture that have been built up and used for years. Is the current security architecture/ framework in-use sufficient to manage the risks? How can an organization securely migrate to and perform on-going monitoring of the cloud environment?

This webinar will discuss the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and Cloud Service Customer (CSC)'s responsibilities regarding cloud security, common causes that lead to cloud breaches and practical ways to allow organizations to build a more secured cloud environment.
