Cloud services are a growing target and in extreme cases, breaches have put companies out of business. Code Spaces is one such example where it had to close doors in June 2014 after hackers gained privileged access to its AWS environment and destroyed critical assets.

Protection of customer data is a priority for cloud providers but cloud security is a shared responsibility. Security of the cloud infrastructure is the cloud provider's responsibility, while access and usage of the data stored in the cloud is the organization's responsibility.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • What security measures cloud providers take and what your obligations are
  • Examples of customers that encountered cloud security issues and how they resolved them
  • How to translate business use cases into actionable requirements
  • How to leverage technology to automate the threat detection and incident response for the cloud
