Threats and Opportunities in Adopting Cloud – A CIO Perspective


Attitudes vary when it comes to security in the cloud. Some think that the vulnerabilities are greater than staying on-premise, others see opportunities to improve their security posture by moving to the cloud. The truth is that it is more complex / subtle than that, for example, the threats faced by on-premise capabilities that different from the threats in the cloud. Join UKCloudX CTO Gerry Cantwell as he explores the similarities and differences between on-premise and cloud based capabilities. Our UKCloudX partner community will then showcase their existing cloud based capabilities demonstrating how those threats and vulnerabilities have been addressed.

Join Gerry Cantwell from UKCloudX between 10:00 – 11:00.

Enabling a secure mobile environment for users with demanding security requirements

Thousands of people across Government who would not ordinarily work from home are now compelled to do so. This has created an inability to communicate at a routine level of security across the whole of Government and Public Sector.  Departments and users simply do not have enough secure IT in place to successfully manage the demand.  Users run the risk of not being able to work at all or taking unbounded security risks whilst communicating

Amid UK Government’s lockdown guidelines to work from home where possible, we look to address the challenges of working securely whilst geographically dispersed and offer solutions for businesses to continue to collaborate in a secure environment.

Join speaker – Robert Gittins – COO of SecureCloud+ for our webinar Q&A for – Enabling a secure mobile environment for remote public servants. We will delve into the challenges surrounding working securely from home and discover how many users have already successfully adopted our approach to ensure they can communicate at a routine level of security by adopting our  SecureCloud+ Managed Mobile Information Service (MMIS).

 
Join Rob Gittins from SecureCloud+ between 11:00 – 12:00.

Virtualisation; the Goldilocks Zone for Cybersecurity

With an increasingly complex and sophisticated threat landscape, organisations should consider complementing the focus of their cyber protection strategies from a purely reactive model to one that is more proactive. VMware believes that the virtualisation layer provides a unique domain for orchestrating and applying security measures that is just “right”. Join VMWare to learn about how prevention techniques, a focus on the applications and data and leveraging the software layer itself can support better cyber security.

Join Scott McKinnon from VMware between 12:00 – 13:00.

Hybrid Cloud that is available, secure and compliant

Cyber Attack: A Clear and Present Danger. How to Secure Communications and Build Resilience in the Cloud

In the current climate, many organisations are experiencing cyber security challenges associated with increased remote working.

Now more than ever before public networks are essential arteries, carrying the lifeblood of data and communications for governments, agencies and enterprises. As we all adopt cloud services, we step closer to the danger of cyber-attack and the very real threat of a hack with significant security, financial or reputational implications.

Whether the enemy is state sponsored actors, ransomware criminals or aggrieved individuals, there is a clear and present need to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data whilst giving the freedom and flexibility to operate without constraint.

In this virtual session we will look at these increased cyber security challenges and discuss how we are applying more than 30 years’ of expertise in the field of government grade encryption to deliver cloud information assurance and resilience for our defence, government, civil and commercial customers.

 
Join Lee Hannaford from L3Harris between 14:00 – 15:00.

The Critical Role of DigitalTwins in Cyber Resilience

The concept of Cyber risk is more than machines, data and encryption. The vastly complex web of relationships and interactions in which your organisation operates are increasingly susceptible to propagating risks. These can have potentially critical impacts to your resilience. Join Fraser Hamilton, VP Global Alliances at BOXARR, to discover how interdependency-mapping (DigitalTwin) is becoming a critical asset to organisations, revealing and combating cyber risk across your operations and engagements.
