Cloud access governance: A key pillar for your cloud security

Presenter: Jonathan Neal (Saviynt)

Format: Roundtable

As cloud becomes mainstream, vast amounts of sensitive data is leaving the traditional perimeter and residing in SaaS applications. At the same time, enterprises are migrating their critical workloads to IaaS providers to cope with elasticity and growth demands.

Irrespective of the type of cloud services enterprises are adopting, ownership and liability to ensure appropriate access control and governance at all times rests with the organisation.

In this session, Jonathan Neal (Technical Director, EMEA at Saviynt) will share insights into security challenges around cloud adoption, the need for a purpose-built access governance solution, and how organisations can establish a comprehensive identity governance and security framework to protect applications, data and infrastructure.
