Vormetric Hosts Federal Computer Week Webcast with Former CIA CISO on Securing Data in the Cloud
Robert Bigman Will Debunk Five Cloud Security Myths and Provide Best Practices for Preventing Data Breaches
WHO: Robert Bigman, Former CISO, Central Intelligence Agency and president of 2BSecure, a privately held information security consulting firm. During his 30 year tenure with the agency, Mr. Bigman received numerous awards and recognition for innovations in IT security. He architected the model information security program for the U.S. Intelligence Community, influenced Intelligence Community and U.S. Government information security policy, and briefed congressional committees and presidential commissions. He is currently focused on helping organizations exploit developments in information technology, such as cloud computing and big data, while ensuring intellectual assets, data, and systems are protected from cyber threats.
Derek Tumulak, Vice President, Product Management, Vormetric. Mr. Tumulak has more than 15 years of product management and engineering experience in the information security industry. Previously he served as Vice President of Product Management for SafeNet and Ingrian. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
WHAT: Organizations are looking to tap the on-demand computing power, analytics, applications, and massive storage offered by the cloud. The Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) issued a “cloud-first” policy promoting cloud computing. Yet progress is slow, since many don’t fully understand and trust cloud security systems to protect their data or ensure compliance with federal and state regulations. In this Federal Computer Week (FCW) webcast, Robert Bigman will expose the myths and reveal steps enterprises and government agencies can take to secure data in the cloud. Participants will learn:
- The impact of virtualization and cloud computing on data security – minus the five myths
- Why hackers view cloud hacking as different, not harder
- Why regulations including FISMA and FedRAMP make excellent starting points, but don’t go far enough
- The role of encryption in mitigating risk and best practices for preventing data exposure
WHERE: FCW webcast delivered to your desktop.
WHEN: Thursday, November 29, 2012 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
