This month’s meeting will focus on managing security and risk in a cloud environment. Elastica is focused on enabling organizations to embrace SaaS and Cloud apps with confidence, providing the needed visibility, security, controls and investigation capabilities. Their solution suite helps a company answer some basic questions about managing its information assets when they give it over to a cloud service provider.
Jason Creech, Elastica’s Director of Security Consulting and Products, Jason brings nearly 20 years’ experience in systems administration and information security to the table. He has earned his stripes working as a practitioner of technology as well as a very successful technology sales professional and consultant dealing with companies like RSA, Qualys, Quest, McAfee and NetIQ.
His discussion will help you answer the following questions as you struggle to understand the challenges of relying on the cloud. 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?
I’m sure you’ll find what Jason has to say both educational and entertaining.
