Machine Learning Is Here to Help, Not Replace

Over the next few years, machine learning (ML) will be a regular security practice and will offset skills and staffing shortfalls. Today though, ML is better at addressing smaller, more specific problems. Technology leaders have to understand that humans and machines complement each other and work better together than alone, as ML can assist humans in addressing uncertainty by presenting relevant information.

The Solution for Your Legacy System's Security: The Cloud

Over the lifespan of an organization, CIOs/CISOs have developed and implemented technologies that have been key to the organization's success. However, CISOs and their security teams today find themselves stuck ensuring that legacy systems are secure. The solution is cloud-delivered security products that are more agile with the ability to implement new detection methods and services faster than on-site solutions. While cloud security is an ideal solution, it is important to know that using the cloud is more than moving legacy management servers to the cloud. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Review the status of legacy system security 
  2. What cloud solutions are the best fit for their business 
  3. What are the main needs in regards to system's scale, data telemetry, staff growth, machine learning, API-based access, and more

Scaling Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud Usage without Sacrificing Data Security and Compliance

Analysts claim that 50% of today's public cloud data and workloads will migrate to private clouds in the next two years. But, don't worry about the public cloud behemoths because their average CAGR continues above 20%. However, the result is that cloud data is spreading across multiclouds and increasingly migrating to private clouds that offers the Enterprise more control. This acceleration in lift and shift of workloads creates data security and compliance risks as well as management complexities. In this discussion, we'll share trends and best practices for enabling data portability without compromising security, compliance, and operational efficiencies. 

Take Aways: 

  • Sharing trends seen by analysts and your peers on multicloud adoption and challenges 
  • Discussion of best practices for leveraging native cloud data security services effectively to maintain compliance and control 
  • Methodology for efficiently applying data and access security techniques that allow for secure lift and shift between public and private clouds
