Enterprise use of cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) grew over 20% in 2016. How has that impacted the risk of cloud-related security incidents and data loss?

Join this webinar for a discussion of cloud security benchmarks for 2017 based on Skyhigh's newly published Cloud Adoption & Risk Report, an analysis of cloud usage & risk from over 600 enterprises and 30 million users.

We'll review hard data on cloud security and answer questions that should guide cloud security strategies, including:

·      How much sensitive data is uploaded to cloud services?

·      What is the prevalence of insider threats and compromised accounts?

·      What are the most common data loss & compliance risks?

·      How are leading organizations addressing cloud security challenges?
