Evaluating Cloud Security Across the EnterpriseRapid Cloud Adoption Created New Businesses With More Security Challenges
The transition to the cloud at a very fast pace during the pandemic affects information security to this day, said Amer Deeba, co-founder and CEO at Normalyze.
"Companies wanted to innovate and create new business processes to serve the customers better and faster. And with all that came a lot of innovation, a lot of building in the cloud, and a lot of data moving into the cloud," he said. “Some of the basic questions we hear from customers: Where’s my sensitive data? Who has access to it? What type of access do they have?”
But the move to cloud introduced new security risks. Many organizations face challenges in understanding where the data is going in cloud environments and how to implement measures to secure it. Fortunately, companies are now evaluating these concerns and looking for ways to address these challenges, he said.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Deeba also discusses:
- The most challenging aspects of cloud visibility;
- The importance of building the right security skills;
- How Normalyze helps customers secure their data.
Deeba has extensive experience in driving product, marketing and sales go-to-market strategies for enterprise and cloud technologies and driving company growth in fast-moving technology fields. Previously, he worked with Moogsoft and Qualys. In his 17-year stint at Qualys, he led all aspects of marketing, business development, strategic alliances and global enterprise accounts.
