Trends in Cloud Security: Key Findings from the 2022 Cloud Security Study

Eric Hanselman, and John McNeice, Research Analysts, 451 Research

Businesses across the globe are accelerating the shift to the cloud in a modern digital world where hybrid workforces are accessing data from anywhere. Along with this shift, security challenges have changed and increased, and are top of mind for IT teams and security professionals. This webinar presents key findings from the 2022 Thales Cloud Security Study. Some of the topics discussed in the webinar include the operational challenges of managing security across multiple clouds; how organizations secure access and protect sensitive data in the cloud, also which technologies and best practices are most effective in securing data in the cloud.

Digital Sovereignty – Your Data, Their Cloud

Todd Moore, Thales and Frank Dixon, IDC

Global commerce depends on the transfer of data as much as the transfer of goods and services. When a European court decision invalidated the overall legal protection umbrella agreement that set forth the data transfer rules between the United States and Europe, the transfer of data overnight became complicated and uncertain. Tune into this webinar to hear from experts from Thales and IDC on how to approach data protection in a cloud computing ecosystem, and the challenges around orchestrating effective security controls in a hybrid cloud environment that depend on proprietary tools and APIs.

Security & Compliance for SAP Data in Financial Services

Dr. Wasif Gilani, Head of SAP Data Custodian, and Alex Hanway, Business Development Director at Thales

Financial services companies keep some of their most valuable data in SAP applications, triggering the need for both additional security and taking steps toward meeting compliance requirements. The need increases as they move workloads to the cloud. For many of these organizations, the challenge is to adopt the right security without having to change their architecture or engage in custom coding. SAP and Thales have worked together to solve these challenges for financial services customers. Tune in to this webinar to learn how SAP’s Data Custodian uses Thales tokenization, encryption, and key management solutions to protect sensitive data and provide compliance relief for regulated financial services data.

Key Findings from 2022 Global Data Threat Report

Eric Hanselman, and Justin Lam, Research Analysts, 451 Research

Trends that have always driven information security, such as new technologies, greater compliance mandates and more severe security incidents, continue to be significant change agents. The 2022 Thales Data Threat Report reviews and analyzes these trends and changes. This webinar examines the changing landscape of data security risks and threats, and you can learn about the leading sources of data threats; breaches and how their impacts weigh on security planning; data sprawl’s impact on data security; threats of remote and hybrid workforces, plus future threats such as quantum computing.

Why Architects Should Rethink Authorizations

Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole Analysts and Ward Duchamps, VP Strategic Partnerships at OneWelcome

In the digital era, organizations are increasingly interacting online with contractors, partners, and customers. Traditional role-based authorization frameworks are not designed to provide these external identities with the right access to resources, services, and apps. A new approach is required. Join the experts from KuppingerCole Analysts and OneWelcome to discover how policy-based access is key.

Look out for even more insightful webinars we have planned for 2023 covering emerging and evolving issues around data security, trends in identity, and privacy.
