Security in the Cloud - Discussion Forum - October 24, 2018
Organizations want to leverage multiple cloud services across different platform vendors. However, security continues to be a key concern. The organic adoption of cloud service across different departments leads to a fragmented cloud security strategy. As a result, it exposes them to compliance issues or potential data breach. On top of that, there is an overload of new security controls in the cloud environment, and security talent is hard to find.
In this session, we will provide IBM Security's point of view on the key security challenges when migrating to cloud. We will share our recommended approach to respond to those issues with some interesting use case stories.
