    Cloud Computing and the Security Landscape

  • Description: 
    • The REAL Security Story
      With massive security breaches announced on the nightly news every couple weeks, is cloud computing even viable? Come to this session to get the inside scoop on the security landscape and what that means to cloud computing and managing your infrastructure. We look at the cloud today as well as how we can expect the cloud and security landscape to change in the coming years. Does the launch of Windows 10 have any bearing on the discussion? How can we keep up with the rapid changes in both the cloud and in security? How are enterprises responding to security and privacy threats and breaches? What are companies doing to clean up their house? Most importantly, how should you respond to protect your business’s assets? Come to this session to find out!
