Fundamentals of Cloud Security

November 10, 2015
Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP
767 Fifth Avenue, New York City/Webinar

Weil’s Cybersecurity, Data Privacy & Information Management group, in conjunction with FireEye, cordially invites you to join us for an important multi-panel CLE discussion, Fundamentals of Cloud Security – the next edition of Weil’s Cybersecurity Briefings. During this event, leading experts from Weil, FireEye, the NIST, and other cybersecurity and cloud-focused organizations will provide proactive, business-oriented analysis of cloud-based environments and infrastructure, and attendant cybersecurity, data privacy, and corporate governance concerns.

Panel 1: The Race to the Cloud – What You Really Need to Know
What are the principles, uses, and security concerns of a cloud computing environment? We review the basic types of cloud services that are available, including public, private, and hybrid clouds. We discuss what sorts of industries are using the cloud to store and use their data, and what types of data they store on the cloud. We assess the most important issue facing companies thinking about transitioning to the cloud – data security – and discuss cloud architecture strategies for securing the cloud, along with fundamental hardware and software security requirements, such as data encryption.

Panel 2: The Pre-Departure Checklist – Service Providers, Access Concerns, Privacy, and Data Breaches
Moving to the cloud is a multi-faceted operation that requires careful advance planning and contingency measures. In this panel, we review the practicalities associated with moving to the cloud, including the negotiation of a comprehensive cloud service level agreement, and industry-specific compliance and privacy requirements. Importantly, we discuss preparing for a cloud-based data breach, including incident response planning, data recovery techniques, and privacy concerns associated with both cloud breaches and recovery efforts.
