Secure your Journey to the Cloud.

Protect your infrastructure using Cloud technologies - 13th October 2016

On the 13th October 2016 we were joined by a number of our Public Sector customers for a morning at the Ritz, by invite only. At this event we looked at how to tackle Cloud Security and addressing the challenges of security in the changing world of IT.

Security in the Cloud remained a main topic of concern on the business agenda, as with an increasingly mobile workforce, transferring between Clouds, businesses need to protect their data in motion.

We were pleased to also be joined by a leader Cyber Crime expert who offered a fascinating session on how the Internet of Things (IoT) could be a risk for all of us; from technology within our homes to projects on a global scale. It was made clear that "members of the public need to take their share of responsibility when it comes to cyber security" – something our guests agreed we should all be mindful of.

Technology evangelists from Exponential-e and one of our customers, Paula Vickers from Middlesex University, also joined our panel of presenters – watch our videos below to find out more about what was discussed and how Exponential-e can assist in ensuring the security of your Cloud.
