Conducting Information Security Risk Assessment on 3rd-Party Vendors, Including Cloud Providers

Today businesses cannot survive without their strategic 3rd-party vendors. However, that comes with risks that need appropriate due diligence, and prior to contract signing. Also regulators continue to raise the bar on 3rd-party due diligence in the financial sector, and unfortunately breaches continue to occur with 3rd-parties; hence the importance of 3rd-party security reviews.

Financial Independence - How Can the Cloud Practically Change Capital Investments to Operational Expense?

This roundtable discussion will focus on the finance and accounting implications of cloud technology. While the cloud brings tremendous opportunities for technologists, finance and accounting are often left to find a new way to perform budgeting, forecasting, and reporting on cloud expenses. This shift from long-range capital planning to day-to-day cost variability has implications in businesses large and small. This session will focus on the actions that participants have taken to incorporate Cloud Service Provider tools into their own long range business planning processes. Similarly, this session will explore the total cost of cloud ownership and how an al a carte approach can be deceptively expensive in the long run.

Cloud Computing is About Business

The pressure is on for the CIO to adopt and adapt; through all the conversations, there are still unanswered questions. There is one key question about cloud computing that is still unanswered, but an answer is required to move things forward. 'Is the discussion regarding cloud computing a technical discussion, a financial discussion or a business discussion?' The dialogs within every organization are circular in nature and seem never ending. The core issue is that the technology and the financial components are moving targets. It is time to change the focus and push the conversation towards business and results? Topics like innovation, agility and skills are much more relevant, no? 

This executive panel discussion will cover topics where business is the real focus of cloud computing - and bring the technology into the conversation where it makes the most sense to you and your business.

IT as a Service Broker

The business is demanding faster response times and greater flexibility when dealing with internal IT. With this demand comes the need for IT to change from a reactive organization to an innovative one, and from being responsive to business demands to truly adding differentiation to the business. New alternatives for obtaining IT services are pushing the adoption of the IT as a service model.

Additionally, the need for IT to support the proliferation of new devices, meet the demands of a highly mobile workforce, manage rapidly expanding data volumes, and ensure the value and security of multiple data sources outside the enterprise is transforming the physical IT environment and changing the way IT roles are performed.

Converged Infrastructure: Bringing Simplicity Back To The Enterprise Datacenter

Enterprise datacenters have become incredibly complex over the years. This complexity is driving up costs and slowing IT down. Enterprise IT is dealing with infrastructure issues rather than innovating to enable business growth. A few years ago, Internet companies developed a better architectural approach to buying, deploying and managing infrastructure. This new approach, called web-scale, is now available as a turnkey solution to enterprises at any scale. Converged infrastructure with web-scale technologies lets enterprise administrators take a predictable pay-as-you-grow approach to deploying and scaling their IT environments while lowering TCO and being responsive to business needs.

Takeaways

1. Converged infrastructure with web-scale technologies simplifies infrastructure deployment, management and operation

2. With a predictable scale-out model, enterprises can grow their infrastructure footprint incrementally

3. Software-defined infrastructure delivers greater flexibility and agility, obviating disruptive hardware upgrades for new capabilities

4. Rich automation and extensive analytics eliminate manual operations and lower operational costs

5. Businesses can lower total cost of ownership by over 50% and power and space requirements by 90%

Big Data, Agile and Cloud

Agile is all about innovation, experimentation, business agility, faster time to market and improving productivity. While the agile movement started much before the advent of cloud computing, its the combination of two that has really brought a true sense of agile implementation. Lean startups and large global enterprises that have successfully married agile and cloud are gaining enormous competitive advantage with higher quality code, faster market responsiveness and greater business agility. Now add Big Data to the mix and our firsthand experience says that its almost impossible to succeed without adeptly marrying the three. This session will cover the specifics of how ICrossing, a digital marketing agency uses cloud to implement true agile for its various big data initiatives.

Taking a Data-Centric Approach to Security in the Cloud

As organizations move business-critical applications from legacy on-premises systems to the Cloud, they need to fully evaluate their approach to security. Traditionally, IT security has focused on strong perimeter security - keeping the good stuff in and the bad guys out. But moving to the cloud - where business-critical data may be stored by cloud service providers in distributed locations - necessitates companies to rethink how to provide security, compliance, and peace-of-mind. 

In this session, you will learn: 

  • Principles and advantages of a data-centric approach to cloud security 
  • Considerations when assessing and deploying security for varying types of cloud data and applications 
  • Encryption and tokenization - what, when and how, including requirements such as access controls, key management and searchability
