This month’s meeting will focus managing security and risk in a cloud environment.  What makes the cloud environments different from on-premises hosting solutions.  Why are some saying that nearly 50% of the companies leveraging cloud services to host their data lose that data in the cloud at one time or another?  What can a company leveraging cloud services do to avoid becoming part of that statistic?

We’ve asked Chris Hill, an old friend of our chapter (at least in length of association with us, not necessarily in age), to come talk to us about this issue. Chris is currently Director of Sales – Southeast at Elastica. Chris Hill has been in technology in the Carolinas for over 15 years.  He has been both a sales engineer and a salesman.  Chris was with Varonis when he and his team last sponsored one of our meetings.  Among the technologies Chris has represented are NetIQ, Qualys, Tripwire, and Varonis.

This is a great opportunity for our members to meet, network, and learn from other members and professionals in the community.  Please be sure to register by clicking on the link below:
