The cloud can bring great benefits to your company, yet there is little doubt that it can also affect the security of your sensitive data and systems. It introduces levels of complexity to the IT environment that can lead to greatly increased risks of breach or compliance gaps. This session will provide simple steps you can take to deliver superior protection of your sensitive assets, whether they reside on premise or with a 3rd party. Gain the control you need to lower your level of IT risk associated with cloud computing while securely delivering business services that originate from, reside in, or are going to the cloud.
Session 2: Don’t Gamble With Your Data: Five Absolutely Critical Questions for Data Security in the Cloud
Presented by: Arleen Urquhart, Product Marketing Manager, eVault
Arleen Urquhart is a Product Marketing Manager focused on Cloud-as-a-Service solutions at EVault. She has more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry, helping companies such as Oracle, Siemens-Nixdorf, Stratus Technologies and Symantec bring business critical solutions to market.
The reasons for moving to the Cloud are as varied as the businesses that are deploying Cloud solutions:
- Increased efficiency and reduced costs
- Frees up the IT team from having to manage some or all of the IT infrastructure
- Pay-as-you-go model—software, hardware and platform all as-a-service
- It’s elastic—the Cloud allows businesses to quickly scale up or scale down, as business requirements dictate
But not all Clouds are created equal. When evaluating a Cloud service provider to manage your critical business data, it’s important to understand how your security goals and those of the Cloud provider are aligned.
Join us March 19, as our EVault expert shares with you the five critical questions you need to ask to make sure your data is secure in the Cloud. What are the right answers to these questions?
- What are your encryption procedures?
- How is communication access to your Cloud handled?
- How is physical access to Cloud data centers handled?
- Do you adhere to the Data Privacy Bill of Rights?
- What will you do to get my business back online when disaster strikes?
The Cloud is no place to gamble with your organization’s data. Get the answers you need to choose wisely.

Our daily life, economics etc. depend on a stable, secure and resilient cyberspace. We rely on a variety of networks to communicate and travel, power our homes and run our economy. Yet cyber intrusions and attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade, exposing sensitive personal and business information, disrupting critical operations and imposing high costs on the economy.
Session 4: Cyber Threats in Today’s World
Presented by: Leighton Johnson, CISA, CISM, CRISC, CTO, ISFMT

- What are the threats “out there” that cause the security professional to lose sleep at night?
- What are the actual trends and activities that organized crime elements and cyber-terrorists are performing in the identity theft arena and other compromising actions or extortion in order to finance their other criminal efforts?
- What are the tools, techniques, and activities that these cyber-criminals and terrorists are using? What do we look for? How do we respond when we find the results?
- Why is it so easy? They can and do target our most valuable logistic and infrastructure assets without leaving their home. They can sit anywhere in the world with a phone line, an internet connection and attack at will, whenever they want.
This session will offer answers to these and other pertinent questions surrounding computer security today. We will present the modern tools and techniques of the modern “hacker, cracker, and terrorist” as well as the methods of detection and prevention available. In addition, we will discuss the full scope of the situation today: international and national, private and public, corporate and government and see what is being used to combat these illegal and illicit activities.
Spotlight Session: APT Survey Results
Presented by: Jo Stewart-Rattray, CISA, CISM, CGEIT, CRISC, FACS CP, Director of Information Security and IT Assurance, BRM Holdich
Stewart-Rattray has 25 years of experience in the IT field, some of it spent as CIO in the utilities space, and 16 years in the information security arena. She is a Fellow of the Australian Computer Society and was a member of CIGRE’s international working group B5.38, which assessed information security risks in power system operations within SCADA systems and the implementation of appropriate controls. She is a past international vice president of ISACA and has served as president of the ISACA Adelaide Chapter, and chair of ISACA’s Leadership Development Committee and Security Management Committee. Currently, she is chair of the Audit Committee and a member of the COBIT Security Task Force.
Advanced persistent threat (APT) has been a term used frequently during security threat discussion; however, confusion exists as to what an APT is and how to manage the risk associated with it. Although the study reveals that a large number of respondents feel that APTs are important and have the ability to impact national security and economic stability, the study also demonstrates that the controls being used to defend against APT might not be sufficient to adequately protect enterprise networks.
Further Insight: Participants may submit questions during the live Q&A sessions that follow each presentation.
