Roundtable: Securing Information in the Cloud (Montreal)
On December 10, 2015 The IT Media Group brought together 11 IT executives from a variety of private and public-sector organizations for a CIO Master Series Roundtable discussion entitled, “Securing Information in the Cloud”. Sponsor for the Montreal event was Salesforce, represented at the table by Chris Makkreel, Head of Solution Engineering.
While businesses see Cloud as a great way to bring rapid and economical functionality to the organization, it demands fresh thinking about how we manage and protect corporate information.
In an environment where some enterprise systems reside with one or more Cloud vendors while others remain on premises, integration and information security issues are more complex.
The session explored the challenges CIOs and security professionals are facing with Cloud, and delved into strategies for ensuring the integrity, accessibility, security and manageability of data in a hybrid environment. Several topics generated a lot of discussion. These included: Barriers to Cloud Security; Security vs. Government Espionage; Vendor Management Issues; User Awareness and Education; and Shadow IT.
