“How can organisations ensure that data is fully protected as it moves from on-premises systems, out to the cloud and across mobile devices? Balancing the security equation is the key to peace of mind.”
Paul Hearns, Editor, TechPro magazine
But how do can data be secured in the cloud without losing those benefits of fluidity and elasticity that so define the cloud experience? How can organisations ensure that data is fully protected as it moves from on-premises systems, out to the cloud and across mobile devices?
This TechFire briefing will draw on the experience of Mark Graham, ICT Director at Beaumont Hospital where a high-profile virtualisation project has been running since 2003. Mark and his team have faced the many challenges of balancing the security of personal medical data with the fluidity and elasticity delivered in the cloud.
Come to this briefing also to gain the insight of Brian Honan, security expert and co-author of the book ‘The Cloud Security Rules’. Brian is an advisor to the European Commission on security topics and a frequent speaker at international data security conferences. Experts from VMware and Trend Micro will bring delegates up to speed with current best practice.
With a focus on the evolving data centre, hybrid environments and mobility, this event will outline the best ways to balance the needs of secure data while getting the best from cloud.
TechFire briefings for IT professionals are free to attend but registration is required: confirm your place now.
