Cloud - Are you ready to move?

Skills covered:


By early 2016, it's expected that 86% of UK companies will be using one cloud computing service, making it a critical time to get up-to-speed with everything that comes along with making the transition. Often people ask, "What will cloud do for my company? How secure is it? What do I need to do from a security standpoint?"

In this webinar, QA's experts will answer all your questions and provide reassurance about migrating your current IT model to a cloud computing solution. Gain a better understanding of what cloud computing means, the benefits and popular solution providers from our Principal Technologist, Matt Bishop. Followed by a unique session around risks, fundamental security processes, and security governance concepts and metrics in the cloud delivered by QA's Cyber Security Technical Consultant Nathan Mitchell.
