Smart Cloud and Security

The proliferation of cloud services and the advent of new development methodologies like DevOps are creating unprecedented possibilities, driving many organizations to migrate to the cloud and modernize existing applications. This evolution presents opportunities for business growth through accelerated development, enhanced scalability and collaboration, new revenue streams, business agility, and greater technical resilience.

Speaker List

As these deployments mature and more data and business functions are hosted in the cloud, there is increasing awareness that benefits can be wiped out by costly regulatory missteps and damaging cyber attacks if security is not woven into the transformation process.

But buying and selling into the lucrative cybersecurity marketplace can be a painful experience, on both sides.

Buyers are overwhelmed by vendor cold calls, unsolicited LinkedIn outreach, buzzword-overuse and confusing product descriptions. For sellers with high-quality products and innovative solutions, cutting through the noise and bringing clarity to the buying process can be quite a challenge.

The Summit will explore and discuss several emerging trends in cloud computing and cybersecurity including edge computing, serverless cloud, artificial intelligence in the cloud and how to secure the multi-cloud, modernization of web application security, organization-wide cloud security posture management and AI for cloud security intelligence.
