Security in the Cloud
Cloud Computing has become an integral part of the information flow at most organizations. Email, databases, applications and files are likely to be, at least in part, hosted on cloud platforms such as Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365, Dropbox, Salesforce or countless others. But many people are concerned about how this impacts the security of their information and want to know what steps they can take to improve the security of their information. In this updated and much requested workshop, first offered at NPCC over a year ago, Joshua Peskay of RoundTable Technology will help you understand the impact of cloud computing on your security and he will outline specific things you can do to improve the security of your information. In the latter part of the workshop, he will explain and review Identity & Access Management (IAM) services such as OneLogin, Okta and Meldium that can manage many, and sometimes all, of your organization's online accounts.
