Hackers & Defenders

9:30 am - 10:15 am
It’s hard to believe Amazon Web Services has now been in operation for 15 years. Along with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, the UK’s three largest hyperscalers have made an indelible impression on the SITS market, changing the scene for good. The seismic shift to public cloud has created innovative and exciting opportunities for organisations and enabled a complete ‘gear change’ – but not without significant challenges. A non-strategic approach, failure to understand ‘cloud economics’, and lack of automation have caused serious problems for many.
In addition, migration of applications and data to the public cloud brings new cyber security threats with IT departments striving to keep close track of sensitive information across a hybrid operating environment. The hyperscalers have hardened their security protection and management solutions, while specialist suppliers have introduced cloud-native security tools optimised to safeguard distributed, cloud-hosted data and workloads. However, it’s not just about the technology. Putting in place the best approach and working with the right ecosystem of providers is absolutely key. In this webinar, we bring attendees up to speed on public cloud in the UK and explain how cyber security can be implemented to ensure the best possible line of defence.
