Session Title | Moving to the Cloud – Different Security Challenge

Whether people admit or not, everyone is moving to the cloud and all future business will run somewhere on the internet. Cloud security remains top priority where CISOs and CIOs need to think differently to set the new architecture and mindset. More terms are developed and thrown on us each year as CASB, CSPM, CWPP, SASE, Zero Trust and more without clear understanding how they relate to each other and how to position them. This session will try to draw the proper approach to build your cloud security strategy with guidance on new security architecture.
