Posted on in Presentations

Cloud encryption is not a new topic however, there are many approaches, architectures, and compromises based on what your provider offers and the tools available to your organization. In the last few years “bring your own key” has emerged a top requirement of organizations that wish to embrace cloud services, yet have governance, corporate policy, or risk profiles that do not allow data and especially encryption keys to be managed by the cloud provider. In this talk Sol Cates, will share different BYOK approaches across all cloud types (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), compare BYOK to BYOE (bring your own encryption), some simple strategies to become successful, and arm you with a simple set of “smart questions” to ask yourself and your providers.
