Topic: Cloud Security Best Practices to Protect Data in the Cloud
Abstract: In the wake of the pandemic, businesses are migrating to digital platforms. Specifically, businesses are switching to the cloud because of the scalability, agility, and cost optimization benefits it offers. “Gartner predicts that public cloud spending will exceed 45% of all enterprise IT spending by 2026, up from less than 17% in 2021.” While there is a huge market demand, enterprises are still concerned about cloud cybersecurity and privacy issues owing to the rise in data breaches. Data loss, internal threats, hacked interfaces, and data breaches remain top security concerns for enterprises using the cloud.
In the discussion, panel members will discuss various trends of cloud adoption, security and privacy concerns, and some of the best practices to address them.
- What is cloud computing and its benefits?
- Define cloud deployment models.
- What are the current trends of digitization and cloud adoption?
- Why is such a trend developing?
- What are the barriers to cloud adoption?
- What are the best practices of cloud security to accelerate business when migrating to cloud?
