Join Softcat, Check Point and Microsoft to learn about the changing security threat for organisations using the public cloud. In a relaxed session (including regular breaks for beer!), we will be providing a summary of the realities of your cloud-based environment and how to develop a strategy to combat them.

The theme is that one mistake is all it takes. This is because data has become more concentrated in the public cloud, meaning the impact of any breach is amplified. By gaining access to the credentials of just one user, or finding a single flaw in the configuration, the public cloud becomes vulnerable. The butterfly effect of one small mistake can be catastrophic for an organisation due to its concentration. Any breach will spread beyond the initial point of weakness.

These threats can be combated through a multi-vendor approach. Microsoft’s focus on securing employee credentials through technology is complimented by Check Point’s programmatic approach that provides visibility of threats to your public cloud, along with security for remediation. The core principle that is shared is the removal of the human element, which is the common mistake that provides the greatest risk.

We will be discussing all of this and more over a beer. We look forward to seeing you there!
