This virtual event digs deep into cloud security strategies and tactics at every level, from cloud native architectures and zero trust security through remote workforce weak points. Arm yourself with tips you can use today and to reinforce your fortress for when – not if – the next big breach strikes in your cloud.

Remote Workforce Endemic Era: Building Security into The New Daily Reality

Presented by: Jerich Beason, CISO, Commercial Bank, Capital One

It’s become clear that remote work is here to stay. Software as a Service (SaaS) has become the new normal for many businesses, and the challenge now is how to scale cloud security for a crush of remote staff that have no way of physically connecting and are probably working from a Caribou.

In this keynote, we will discuss real-world tools and strategies for maintaining and securing your remote workforce, meeting them exactly where they are in terms of their work environment and the modes, methods, and modalities they use to access corporate resources. We will explore the unique security challenges of a SaaS-driven remote workforce and provide practical advice for how to address these challenges to keep your data and your organization safe

Seeking Cost Efficiency in Public Cloud

Sponsored by: Fortinet

Cloud computing requires capital, but it does not have to break the bank.

Over time, organizations can find savings and improve ROI by managing expectations and understanding how cloud providers price services.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How cloud migration can impact security and ROI
  • How an on-premises-to-cloud migration process begins
  • What the benefits of cloud migration are (cost, flexibility, performance, and scalability)
  • Strategies to overcome cloud migration challenges
  • How companies should prioritize deployment styles
