There had been many motivations such as cost reduction, improvement of IT flexibility, or business needs such as requirements to share files among business partners. The evolution of IoT had also greatly accelerated cloud adoption. It is inevitable that a new storm is arising, hackers are targeting cloud for the very same reason why cloud was adopted – available anywhere, and anytime. As assessment has been done with various customers, some of the industry observations of threats on cloud such as shadow IT and data will be shared. Matthias will share about the best practices of Cloud Continuum, moving towards the 2 pillars of protection / security, and compliance / governance, and how traditional security infrastructure controls can be mapped to the cloud application protection.
