    The adoption of public cloud applications continues to accelerate for both organizations and individuals at an exponential rate, evidenced across the massive growth in the volume of accounts, files, collaboration, and connected third-party cloud applications. For example, we recently discovered that organizations have an average of 1.2 million files stored in the cloud - 10 times the volume of files stored in public cloud applications compared to last year. However, the rapid surge of accounts, file and applications presents increased risk in the form of an extended data perimeter. The adoption of cloud applications has significantly increased the threat surface for cyber attacks, including those that target sensitive data, be it credit card information from a retailer, intellectual property from a manufacturer, M&A information from a publicly traded company, or other critical information.

    While many of us are all too familiar with data breaches, few have gotten up close and personal to deconstruct the who, what, why, when, and how of a breach -- particularly cloud-based data breaches. In this session, CloudLock CTO and co-founder, Ron Zalkind, and Akamai CSO, Andy Ellis, will break down several cloud data breaches, highlighting the differences between cloud-based and traditional breaches, as well as providing ways security professionals can enable their organization to embrace and leverage the benefits of cloud technologies while remaining secure and compliant. Through examples, attendees will learn about the rising concern over cloud breaches and how to protect sensitive data either on-premises or in cloud applications, as well as how to keep up with the increased security demand of the cloud and align security with the business strategy of their organizations.
