17 April 2018 – London

Thank you to everyone who attended the Cloud Security 360 Roundtable 2018. This was a multi-faceted benchmarking for CISOs, CIOs and senior IT executives directly responsible for greater adoption of cloud. Sharing good practice taken from lessons learned in managing cloud risk and security to create a health-check and response plan.

As threats become ever more advanced and ubiquitous in the era of digital innovation and industry convergence, organisations need to ensure that the security and risk strategies relating to cloud deployments are up to date and fit for purpose and that teams are prepared to deal with the different risks in each area and across each part of the security infrastructure. While preventing all security breaches might be unrealistic, preparing a veritable ‘360’ health-check and a tested response plan for vulnerabilities and costings in the cloud is something that CISOs, CIOs and senior IT executives must do.

The Cloud Security 360 Roundtable provides the opportunity for CISOs, CIOs and other senior risk and technology professionals with remits covering cloud enablement and cyber risk, to examine in-depth and with combined peer group brain power, the different risk perspectives, and crucially costings associated with each area, and to share the latest approaches and updates on cloud security deployments.

The ideal time and place for CISOs to benchmark with other CISOs as well as to meet with CIOs to share experiences around security in the cloud. Reconnect with peers and expand your network of trusted contacts to strengthen your capacity. Receive threat intelligence about cloud vulnerabilities, due diligence for 3rd party supply chain, incident response measures and defending appropriately in the context of cloud adoption.


A multi-faceted ‘360’ look at how the CISO and cybersecurity directors engage with other key functions that are directly involved in key cloud decisions, for investment, governance, innovation and resilience.

 Roundtable 1: JUSTIFICATION: Cloud investment (CFO/ Business engagement perspective)
• Proven ways to win investment budget for your security strategy for the cloud
• What are the financial risks and opportunities involved in cloud adoption
• What is the strategic mission of cloud migration • Security costings

Roundtable 2: WHAT ARE THE RISK CONSIDERATIONS: Health risk check (GRC perspective)
• Risks of unsanctioned cloud applications to your security stance
• Legal, privacy and GDPR challenges with the cloud
• Supply chain due diligence
• Security audit considerations • Security costings

Roundtable 3: ACHIEVING THE CIO/CTO VISION WITH SECURITY BY DESIGN: Cloud innovation and transformation (CTO/CIO perspective)
• What key business technology risk decisions do we make
• How are we wrapping security around infrastructure
• Security costings

Roundtable 4: RESPONDERS PERSPECTIVE: Cloud incident response
(CERT/ CNI perspective)
• What is the scope, source, magnitude and management response?
• What data and information should be collected
• Who is on the crisis team
• At what stage should customers be informed?
• What is the difference between responding to an insider attack as opposed to an attack via your cloud provider?
• What should be agreed in advance in the cloud provider contract – based on real experience examples / pitfalls?
• Security costings

Two facilitators (a practitioner and a senior strategist) will lead each table. Each of the 4 tables will focus on a given different ‘perspective’ of cloud security risk to consider. Attendees will be asked to select 2 out of the possible 4 Roundtables below, rotating in groups with each session lasting for 1 hour. Facilitators and a note-taker will remain fixed to each table to lead and capture the key discussion points, observing The Chatham House Rule.

Shared output benefits

Notes will be taken throughout the roundtable discussions, observing the Chatham House Rule. Once all the feedback has been compiled and written up, the end-result will become the ‘Cloud security 360 health-check and risk plan’, a report that will be distributed to all attendees in the weeks following the event with the combined thoughts and conclusions from the participating leading UK companies.
