Commercial cloud offerings have been available for several years, yet some data and application owners still struggle to secure their assets. Properly securing your cloud resources and accounts is critical to avoid loss of sensitive data, financial loss, and the associated impact to business reputation.
Join us at ECPI University on Thursday, June 13, as speaker Ed Summers presents some lessons learned on cloud security based on his recent experiences migrating applications into a commercial cloud environment. The discussion and examples will be relevant across a variety of cloud providers and of interest to those who perform cloud implementations as well as application owners who depend on others to host their data in the commercial cloud.
RISE meetings are free and open to the public. Drop in, enjoy the presentation, and network with fellow InfoSec professionals and enthusiasts in the area!
