Making cybersecurity more effective in the age of cloud and COVID-19
Cloud Risk & Security
Cloud and COVID-19 have combined to magnify the need for effective cybersecurity. Companies that focus on data, automation, and risk assessment will have a better chance at cybersecurity success.
Shoring up cybersecurity in the age of cloud and COVID-19
Cybersecurity has always been a critical task that must be handled effectively. However, cloud—and more recently—COVID 19—have exacerbated cybersecurity issues and changed the security landscape. In this episode of the podcast, Mike Kavis and guest, Ascent Solutions’ Kayne McGladrey, discuss cybersecurity in the context of cloud, and vis-à-vis the changes wrought by the pandemic. Kayne’s take is that the transition to cloud and the pandemic have exposed and magnified issues that have always been a problem, and that companies should not skimp on cybersecurity, in favor of spending on other “more pressing” projects. The key to success is to focus on data, automation, and risk assessment.
COVID-19 really has exposed some larger IT and cloud issues that are not so easily solved, and they definitely are on the increase.Kayne McGladrey is the Architect and GRC Practice Area Lead at Ascent Solutions. His role is to advise companies on how to enhance their cybersecurity capabilities by more effectively managing risks and deterring and denying threat actors.
