Cloud transformation and granting secure remote access were two initiatives accelerated by cybersecurity professionals in 2020. Faced with a pandemic, virtual and remote became the new normal.
While 48% of organizations accelerated their cloud migrations due to the pandemic, the urgency of businesses to adapt to the new normal often meant security was left behind.
In this Centrify CyberCast, Dr. Chase Cunningham will share his insights on how a secure cloud environment is a key factor in reducing the risk of cybersecurity threats. And as organizations continue to digitally transform, he’ll advise on privileged access pitfalls to avoid lapsing into a “PAM-demic.”
Dr. Cunningham will also speak to:
- Best practices in secure remote access and Zero Trust Principles
- Key security factors in accelerating your cloud transformation and how to discuss cyber strategy with business leaders
- Identity consolidation and governance for humans and machines
- The benefits of privilege elevation for security and infrastructure
