20 years ago, most companies could not have imagined the wide-ranging impact that cloud computing would have on their operations and the cybersecurity risks they would face. Today, cloud computing has become a must-have technology for virtually all enterprises, and IT architectures have evolved to support the new ways that the cloud enables people to work. Cloud giants like Amazon, Microsoft, SFDC, and Google are even investing heavily to offer elastic, pay-as-you-go, cloud services. However, many companies still encounter cloud security challenges.
In this talk, IT-Harvest Chief Research Analyst Richard Stiennon will reveal the CIO’s journey to securely adopting a cloud-first strategy.
Stiennon will also share learnings and best practices from his new book Secure Cloud Transformation: The CIO’s Journey, which includes the real-world cloud transformation journeys of 16 progressive IT leaders.
