Fortune 500 companies are bigger targets because they have more to lose. The cloud can make upper management uncomfortable because it exposes their vulnerability and creates risk in a relatively new space.
Plano, TX (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Cloud security for Fortune 500 companies will be the focus when Layered Tech Chief Risk Officer Jeff Reich addresses the 2013 Big Cloud Event on June 18 in Minneapolis, MN. The day-long conference will bring together cloud service providers and cloud service users to discuss the cloud computing experiences and needs of very large enterprises. The challenges of building and operating “big clouds” will be explored, as well as big cloud success stories, trends, and future prospects.
As CRO for compliant hosting leader Layered Tech, Reich has front line experience managing the data security and compliance requirements of large enterprises in sectors including financial services, healthcare, and government. A well-known risk management and security expert, Reich will give conference attendees insight into the unique security challenges faced by Fortune 500 companies due to the scale of their operations and their high public profiles which make them attractive targets for data thieves and “hacktivists”. Reich will also share the lessons that Layered Tech has learned from years of hosting secure, compliant private clouds for large corporate and government organizations at its data centers in the U.S. and worldwide.
”By nature,” Reich says, “Fortune 500 companies are bigger targets because they have more to lose. The cloud can make upper management uncomfortable because it exposes their vulnerability and creates risk in a relatively new space. But done right, the investment in cloud makes solid business sense because it can absolutely be leveraged to their advantage.”
Also at the Big Cloud Event, Layered Tech is proudly sponsoring an evening presentation from someone who knows about identifying and defeating security threats at a whole different level: former Navy SEAL and Iraq War veteran Larry Yatch. Yatch will offer a riveting and inspirational account of overcoming obstacles under harrowing conditions, and also tell attendees about his business venture Sealed Mindset’s Firearm Studio which provides regular individuals with the interactive training they need to confidently defend their own personal and family security.
The Big Cloud Event will be held at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis, starting at 8 a.m. For more information about the 2013 Big Cloud Event visit http://bigcloudevent.splashthat.com.
