MINNEAPOLIS, October 19, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Cloud Security Specialist Kevin Malesky of Check Point Software Technologies will join a panel of experts to discuss “Cloud Security: Considerations and Risks” on Oct. 24 during the 2018 Cyber Security Summit at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The panel will review how protecting applications using cloud services, whether IaaS, PaaS or SaaS, presents problems for traditional security models that have been used for decades to protect typical data center environments. While legacy security models quickly prove inadequate for protecting cloud workloads, the automation and scalability associated with cloud environments can, in many cases, provide more advanced and effective security controls than previously possible in on-premise environments. This session will outline the various cloud features and functionality that can be leveraged to effectively protect even high-security workloads.
The moderator for the session is Jenny Menna, Senior Vice President, Information Systems Security, US Bank. Other panelists include Krishnan Srinivasan, Vice President, Information Security, Target, and Nicholas Steblay, Enterprise Capability Architect, Best Buy.
