"In their deepening embrace of cloud solutions, financial services companies have to work carefully, consistently, and continuously, to balance the enterprise's need for cloud's agility and scale with its need to limit risk," notes John Burke, CTO of Nemertes. "The power cloud brings along with it a hefty dose of complexity, always a cybersecurity challenge and an amplifier of risk. Join our event, as we discuss how financial services firms can meet the challenge of harnessing cloud without heedless, needless risk."
Presentations will cover the challenges of enabling secure multicloud operations in the financial world, as well as best practices and solutions.
The focus of the panel discussion will be on the dangerous opportunities inherent in the ongoing rise of cloud in financial services, the interplay between cloud’s not-so-secret superpower – agility – and the need to reduce and mitigate risk by implementing robust security across clouds and transitioning to a zero-trust world even as the enterprise extends itself across ever more clouds.
Topics to be covered during this event include:
- Agility: the superpower of cloud services
- Where quantum meets cloud security
- Business continuity and the transition to clouds
- Icloud security and performance
- API management and security in the cloud
- Zero Trust and cloud governance
- Consistent security across AWS, Azure, and GCP
- Identity management and the cloud
