IBM Cloud will be hosting several cloud security sessions at Think 2021 (May 11, 2021), with expert speakers, customer stories and hands-on labs.

Here are five of our top sessions:

1. Going Beyond Confidential Computing: Protect Your Sensitive Data in the Cloud

As our reliance on data grows in the hybrid cloud era, the need for data privacy and protection is imperative. Companies are being challenged with finding the most comprehensive ways to assure security across the lifecycle of their customers’ data. IBM Cloud focuses on enabling capabilities that go beyond confidential computing for the highest level of privacy assurance. Hear from Ledgermatic and Temenos and learn how IBM approaches sensitive data while leveraging confidential computing.

2. Automate Cloud Security with the IBM Security and Compliance Center and Tanium

Enterprises moving regulated workloads to public cloud need to show they’re meeting regulatory compliance requirements. The IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center provides security and compliance posture and guardrails to govern usage, and it allows you to gain security insights for risk posture. Join this session to learn how our partnership with Tanium can help you deliver continuous cloud security and compliance through an easy-to-use, highly automated solution — especially for our IBM Cloud for Financial Services customers.

3. Fortifying Your Cloud-Native Apps, Ensuring End-to-End Zero Trust Security, DevSecOps and Compliance

Enterprises moving regulated workloads to public cloud need to consistently demonstrate that they meet security and compliance requirements, which includes addressing topics like DDOS protection, storing secrets and credentials, user identity and access control, securing data and monitoring cloud environments for threats. This session will cover how to develop a secure application on IBM Cloud with zero-trust security, DevSecOps, confidential computing and continuous compliance in mind. 

4. Rethink Cloud Security to Innovate with Speed

Businesses are adopting cloud to innovate at speed. However, when it comes to hosting sensitive and regulated workloads on the public clouds, enterprises are being forced to relook at their approach to managing security and compliance.  In this session, we will discuss a prescriptive approach to implementing controls, protecting sensitive data and achieving continuous security and compliance. We will share our experiences from client engagements and differentiating capabilities in IBM Cloud.

5. Cloud Security for Digital Enterprises

Cloud adoption in enterprises and regulated industries brings about stringent requirements around security and compliance. IBM’s Cloud Security portfolio enables hyper data protection, continuous compliance and proactive threat management. In this session, we will share the latest set of these capabilities from IBM Cloud and IBM Security that will help you securely migrate workloads, modernize your applications and/or build cloud-native apps across hybrid clouds.
