Assessing the risk in public cloud - Darron Gibbard - Ep72
< 1 day ago
As the desire to integrate public cloud into our organisations IT continues to grow, the need to ensure we maintain control and security of our key assets is a challenge but one that we need to overcome if we are going to use cloud as a fundamental part of our future IT infrastructure.
The importance of security and reducing our vulnerabilities is not, of course, unique to using public cloud, it's a key part of any organisations IT and data strategy. However, the move to public cloud does introduce some different challenges with many of our services and data now sitting well outside the protective walls of our datacentre. This means that if our risks and vulnerabilities go unidentified and unmanaged it can open us up to the potential of major and wide-reaching security breaches.
This weeks Tech Interviews is the second in our series looking at what organisations need to consider as they make the move to public cloud. In this episode we focus on risk, how to assess it, gain visibility into our systems regardless of location and how to mitigate the risks that our modern infrastructure may come across.
To help discuss the topic of risk management in the cloud, I'm joined by Darron Gibbard. Darron is the Managing Director for EMEA North and Chief Technology Security Officer for Qualys with 25 years' experience in the enterprise security, risk and compliance industry, he is well placed too discuss the challenges of public cloud.
We discuss the vulnerabilities that a move to cloud can create, the importance of visibility and how cloud, when managed correctly, is no riskier than any other part of our enterprise IT.
We also get some tips from Darron on building a risk based approach to cloud, Qualys's 5 principles of security and transparent orchestration.
Darron provides some great information on managing risk in the public cloud.
Enjoy the show.
