Government-wide pressure to reduce IT costs and optimize operations has led many agencies to embrace cloud computing. Despite the potential savings and improved efficiencies, securing the cloud remains a major concern. Cloud Computing Security can be defined as defending the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of agency assets (data, applications, infrastructure) using cloud services from both outside and insider threats.

Securing the Cloud can be a daunting challenge considering each cloud provider tends to have its own security products and services. Security policies need to be applied to both internal agency and third-party management cloud environments. This virtual workshop will review Cloud Computing Security best practices to include review and updating of existing IT guidelines, controls, and processes, with the specific goal of protecting data and systems while also meeting regulatory obligations.

DGI’s virtual Cloud Security Conference will explore the policies, applications, strategies, technologies, and best practices associated with securing the government cloud.
