Troy Davidson Presenting: Protecting Data in a Multi-Cloud Environment

Digital innovations and cloud computing continue to drive benefit across all functions of everyday businesses. While many organizations have made large scale moves to cloud services, they have done so with multiple vendors putting data at risk in multiple providers with a variety of security controls and disparate management capabilities. Understanding the challenges in supporting a multi-cloud environment and determining the appropriate management functions and security required can be difficult.  With cloud security growing increasingly stronger and ever more complex, considerations for multi-cloud management are key for security professionals to ensure successful cloud deployments.
