Cloud security: Securing beyond the perimeter

  • Date: Wednesday, 18th July, 2018
  • Time: 6:15pm
  • Location: Swan at Shakespeare’s Globe, 21 New Globe Walk, London, SE1 9DT

What’s on the agenda

Cloud deployments have transformed network and system topologies. As a result, the enterprise perimeter is an increasingly complicated concept – to define and to defend. Join 15–20 senior executives to explore what this means for the traditional firewall, why ‘lift-and-shift’ isn’t the answer, and how cloud-based firewalls can secure widely distributed networks. Discussions will include the role of the firewall in a cloud and hybrid world, and how to tackle the risks from on-premises firewalls being deployed in cloud-based infrastructures.
