Key success factors for managing cloud security

Cloud Risk & Security

Cloud security isn't simply throwing technology at problems. It's understanding security in the context of a complex cloud environment and using teamwork, processes, and technology to discover potential security issues and prevent them before they become catastrophic.

Effective planning and execution of cloud security: What it takes to make it better?

Join host David Linthicum and guest Lori MacVittie, Principal technical evangelist, office of the CTO at F5 networks, as they discuss security in the cloud. Lori provides her perspective on problems organizations face with security, and how teamwork plays a more critical role than technology in fixing problems—and making sure they’re discovered before they become catastrophic. Lori and David also discuss the future of security in the cloud and what CIOs can do to start moving toward that future right now.

We are all accountable for all those things so that we all work together to achieve that, because there is no piece of this puzzle when you look at the different silos that doesn't somehow impact the security or the performance or the availability. First, get aligned on what it means to be successful in the first place. It isn't just you get measured on this one piece of it and you get measured on this other piece of it. You have to be measured on the same things and take responsibility for that so that you work together. You're more likely to–and to communicate more, to understand the impacts, and thus form a broader set of expertise across that team to understand.

Lori MacVittie is a subject matter expert for F5 Networks on cloud computing, cloud and application security, devops and application delivery. MacVittie has extensive development and technical architecture experience in both high-tech and enterprise organizations, in addition to network and systems administration expertise.
