You, Azure & the Cloud: The Shared Responsibilities of Cloud Security

Security in the Cloud

Security in the Cloud

Capabilities, solutions, and considerations that must be planned for when adopting cloud services.

The cloud offers opportunities for speed, agility and innovation. But it also presents the need for an expanding set of security considerations. Security challenges are increasing at all layers as more and more financially motivated actors target data assets regardless of environment. In the cloud, a new matrix of responsibilities must be planned for. Unlike an on-premises environment where the responsibility is squarely on the environment owner, in the cloud security responsibility is shared with responsibilities shifting depending on the type of cloud service (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) being leveraged. During this interactive session we’ll discuss: - How security responsibilities are shared between Microsoft as the cloud provider and the end customer - The responsibility Microsoft has in ensuring the Azure platform is secure - The customer's responsibility and the capabilities, solutions and considerations that must be planned for when adopting cloud services - Applying the NIST cyber security framework (Identify, Protect Detect, and Respond) to real world situations Join us in Sunnyvale for an engaging session led by experts from Microsoft & Valorem. You’ll be joined by other transformative business leaders who have the desire to sleep at night, knowing their cloud service has the security their business needs.
