February 18 – Portsmouth – Axis host ISSA NH Meeting


Title: Key components required for a risk-based approach to protecting information in the cloud generation.

Abstract: It’s no longer a question of if clouds are secure. Rather the question is how are you going to ensure that employees make appropriate use of and interact safely with applications from cloud service providers? Cloud governance, visibility and control are critical issues that need to be addressed. For many organizations cloud strategy still lags cloud use. After touching upon cloud ownership and risk acceptance, we’ll, look closely at the two things you still have control over, and certainly accountability for — the people and the data.
