On behalf of the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, within the Digital Forensic Research Lab, please join us for a virtual panel discussion on cloud computing and how policy can ensure its security and resilience on Monday, July 17, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm ET.
Cloud computing is here to stay. Organizations from Fortune 500 companies to nonprofits and government agencies have moved to the cloud because of its myriad benefits and the Federal government has made cloud adoption the law of the land. As cloud computing becomes a critical dependency for finance, defense, and healthcare infrastructure, its security and resilience are a question of US national security.
How can policymakers keep pace with a novel set of risks emerging from the widening adoption, size, and complexity of cloud infrastructure?
This discussion will address emerging risks and benefits in cloud computing and the role policy can play in managing these risks.
The panel discussion will feature Todd Conklin, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Protection at the US Department of Treasury; Jim Higgins, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of Snapchat, Kelly Shortridge, Senior Principal in Product Technology at Fastly; and Scott Piper, Principal Cloud Security Researcher at Wiz.
