As a Trend Micro customer who is using cloud security for AWS, you have been specially selected to join this virtual laptop lunch discussion. Pulse Conferences has been  commissioned to host this live discussion that will discuss cloud security.

With complexity introduced by hybrid and multi Cloud environments, it becomes increasingly more difficult to spot mistakes and misconfiguration errors that expose data. Speakers and peers will discuss the risks associated with Cloud and how ‘security guardrails’ can help to provide vital assurance, stopping non-compliance and breach causing misconfigurations.

Cloud adoption is moving pretty fast and, given further complexities introduced by hybrid and multi cloud environments, it becomes increasingly difficult to spot mistakes that expose data. This is a great opportunity to hear from senior strategists as well as how your peers are approaching these challenges.

Why join? 

This is a great opportunity for CISOs and senior practitioners of information security, cloud, architecture and technology risk to hear updates and compare tactics within a closed door peer group! Guests will be visible on the screen throughout contributing to the discussion throughout.

The virtual discussion promises to be educational, entertaining and memorable!
