Cyber Security in the Cloud

Will running services in the Cloud introduce additional vulnerabilities or will it be an opportunity to become more resilient?  Learn what other organisations have done and define the actions that organisations should take to mitigate any risks

Many organisations have concerns about the security of the information they store in the Cloud and are trying to keep pace with the change in Cyber threats. Is Cloud a threat or a solution?

Daniel Pearce, our Membership Executive, provides his key takeways from the workshop below.



To empower technology professionals to ensure the safety of the organisation's data in the Cloud.


Jeremy Newton, Director, Technology Law Alliance, explained the legal implications that organisations should consider when adding data to the Cloud. Key takeways from his presentation are available below.

Michael Humphries, Global Cyber Security Analyst, SThree, spoke about their journey into the Cloud and how the security concerns were addressed.

His presentation highlights are:

  • Your outsourcing the service and not the risk.
  • Do due diligence and make sure you ask your selected vendors all the questions you need answers to.
  • Cloud is not always going to save you money epically at the beginning of your journey.
  • Shadow IT is already in your organisation; imbed in your staff and the PMO process the importance of including IT when selecting a cloud service.
  • Cloud services are not a way for the business to circumvent IT.
