Making the move to the cloud is no longer a luxury or a preference for government agencies – it’s a necessity. Government IT decision makers understand why this is the case – increased agility, better data management and governance, streamlined operation, etc. – but many struggle with understanding how to effectively execute this migration safely and efficiently.
With “cloud first” initiatives in place, the pressure is on for government agencies to not only implement cloud solutions into their operations quickly, but to do so with ever-tightening budgets. This scenario begs the questions of where to start, what to prioritize, and what infrastructure can be used that already exists (and we’ve already poured significant budget into), all while keeping this extremely sensitive data safe.
This is where the need for a well-oiled cloud assurance program comes into play. In an upcoming webinar, “How to Develop and Implement an Effective Cloud Assurance Program”, FireEye’s Ron Bushar, Vice President and CTO – Government Solutions, will explain steps and best practices to building a cloud assurance program. With this structure in place, government IT decision makers can confidently move forward with their “cloud first” plan of action and abide by increasing expectations and regulations of government bodies.
In this webinar, Bushar will walk attendees through the following topics:
• Identifying roles and responsibilities of government, service provider, and third-party stakeholders
• Assessing existing traditional on-premises key controls against cloud services and establishing a cloud-adapted risk assessment process
• Implementing requirements baselines, risk assessments, and approaches to addressing unique risk scenarios
• Selecting a cloud service delivery and deployment model
This webinar will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 11:00 AM PT/ 2:00 PM ET. You can register for the webinar here and learn how you can swiftly and effectively implement your organization’s cloud assurance program.
