As the number of internet-connected devices skyrockets into the billions, a data security strategy is an increasingly important part of any organization’s ability to manage and protect critical information. Enterprises are migrating to the cloud in droves, however, protecting data in the cloud remains a challenge as employees push to access cloud apps from any device, anywhere. In the last year alone, 1 in 3 organizations were hacked more than 5 times, and with the increased number of attacks the financial cost of security incidents is also rising.
In many cases, breaches are caused by a combination of benevolent insiders, targeted attacks, and malicious insiders. For example, targeted attacks are often enabled inadvertently by well-meaning insiders who fail to comply with data or security policies, which can lead to a data breach. In this webinar, our panel will discuss major trends impacting cyber security – from the rising frequency of attacks and types of threats that organizations should be concerned about the most, and they will address the risks, priorities, and capabilities that are top of mind for enterprises as they migrate to the cloud.
• Learn about the risks, priorities, and capabilities that are top of mind for enterprises as they migrate to the cloud
• Find out about the major trends impacting cyber security
• Discover some of the benefits, approaches, and tools to objectively quantify your organization’s information security risks, and comply with data security policies
