Cloud is part of today's infrastructures, and infrastructures are part of clouds. Are security infrastructures maturing to support the business and improve risk management in the cloud model? How are organizations using the public cloud to meet their business needs?

This webcast will explore the results of the SANS 2019 Cloud Security Survey, conducted in cooperation with the Cloud Security Alliance, concerning organizations' use of the public cloud and will provide actionable advice for attendees to improve their cloud security. Attendees will learn about the:

  • Types of applications that are implemented most frequently through the cloud
  • Number of public cloud providers most organizations use
  • Concerns organizations have about use of the public cloud and the frequency of those concerns becoming realities
  • Issues associated with public cloud breaches
  • Technologies used to secure sensitive data in the cloud and integrate with in-house environments
  • Challenges organizations face in adapting incident response and forensics to a cloud environment
