Securing Multiple Cloud and SaaS Environments Requires New Paradigm


Securing Multiple Cloud and SaaS Environments Requires New Paradigm

Featuring: Frank Kim, CISO-In-Residence, YL Ventures

As businesses migrate more and more applications to the cloud and continue relying on SaaS applications, CISOs are under pressure to ensure every IT environment is secure. This requires a new paradigm in formulating cloud security strategies because the technologies differ from on-premises technologies, and the security aspects vary from one cloud provider to another.

In this interview, Frank Kim examines the approach CISOs must take to secure multiple cloud and SaaS environments. Kim also discusses the importance of understanding the differences between on-premises security and the cloud and why the speed of the cloud requires a new security paradigm. Kim then presents why CISOs need to give business units and software developers security options (rather than locking them into one tool) while balancing a combination of governance and technical expertise.
