[Live Event] The silver lining to cloud security: the latest Forrester and IBM research

When:  Sep 28, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)
From 2020 to now—with all its tumult— the world witnessed a massive shift in the way most organizations work. Much of that transformation included migrating workloads to cloud and enabling remote access for workforce, with varying levels of security and trust. Yes, cloud has made life easier for organizations but with benefit often comes risk. In a recent Forrester Consulting report, commissioned by IBM, survey results revealed that in 2021 - 75% of decision-makers found securing their hybrid cloud environment more challenging than ever before, and that fewer than half have a documented, holistic, cloud security strategy.

Join this session to hear from guest speaker Andras Cser, Senior Vice President at Forrester and cloud security industry leaders on the findings from two ground-breaking reports (Forrester Cloud Security Spotlight Report and X-Force Cloud Security Landscape Report) and learn about:

  • The top obstacles for building mature cloud security practices
  • How threat actors attempt to break in and common cloud attack types
  • The business outcomes of implementing strong hybrid cloud security
  • Best practices from X-Force’s and IBM Security on IR, strategy, deployment and management
