Virtual Event: Securing the Cloud

Building Effective Frameworks to Safeguard Public Sector Cloud Environments

Friday, 5 February 2021
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEDT

Agenda Overview:

With government agencies turning to cloud for its flexibility and efficiency gains, developing and integrating a cloud risk management strategy has become crucial; especially in a public sector environment where the personal details of millions of citizens are stored and are highly susceptible to cyber attacks.

Understanding the recommended controls, best practice methods to secure data, as well as navigating the responsibilities of your department versus the cloud service provider makes building effective frameworks to safeguard your cloud environments challenging.

To help overcome this challenge, and provide you with the guidance needed to implement secure cloud solutions, Public Sector Network have organised the complimentary ‘Securing the Cloud’ virtual event, bringing together cloud security professionals from all levels of government to share case studies and practical tips.
