Cloud Data: Do you know if it’s secure or vulnerable?

Gartner predicts that 85% of businesses will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025. 

Harnessing the power and potential of cloud data for innovation has amazing potential for increasing efficiency, agility, and reducing costs. However, the “innovation attack surface” created by an organization’s developers and data scientists using, moving, and sharing data can be a nightmare for data security teams to protect.

In this webinar, you’ll gain valuable insights into the latest trends and best practices for data security in the cloud. Done right, cloud data security helps prevent data breaches, protect sensitive information, and ensure compliance with data protection regulations.

Fortunately, both the EDM Council’s CDMC (Cloud Data Management Capabilities) framework and Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) technology have emerged to enable businesses to innovate with cloud data safely.

Tune in to hear from our panel of cloud data experts from AWS and Laminar to help you answer:

  • What is the new “Innovation Attack Surface” and how can I reduce its risk?
  • What is DSPM and why is it critical now for data in the cloud?
  • How can DSPM help me adhere to the CDMC capabilities and key controls to protect sensitive data in the cloud?
  • What should I consider when implementing a DSPM strategy?
