The only thing that’s constant is change. We’ve gone from cloud migration to cloud evolution. And now, we approach a cloud-first mindset. This session focuses on the fact that any change brings with it both positives and negatives- and this change is no different.
Defense in depth is still a conceptual positive for enterprise cyber security. But heaps and mounds of technical debt is an absolute negative. As each technology cycle shortens, organizations must balance adding solutions with the complete lifecycle value depreciation of the total cyber security stack.
The current state of affairs has uncovered vulnerabilities in extended enterprise resiliency. Over the past year, once reliable partners have fallen by the wayside. New partners proliferate the extended enterprise with new ones added on a daily basis. Any technology implementation is complex, let alone one that reconfigures your entire network infrastructure and architecture.
Cyber security team skill sets evolve with the advancement of technology. Such is life. But the pace of change has been exacerbated in concert with a global health disruption which has had deleterious effects on society and enterprise budgets. Somehow, CISOs must find a way to advance enterprise technology and the teams that oversee that technology no matter the external environment.

Cloud evolution is usually based on industry/regulations, budget and mindset. If the industry is highly regulated- cloud evolution is based on that fact. If the industry is not- cloud evolution is more about budget and/or mindset. It is now evident that the future of cyber security is at least mostly in the cloud.
