Elvis and the King meets OpenWorld 2018

Greg Jensen
Sr Principal Director - Security - Cloud Business Group

Going into OpenWorld 2018 I am reminded how I have often cited the great data migration as “Elvis has Left the Building”, while my colleague Brian Jensen, from KPMG has often called it “The King has Left the Castle”.  Either way, the point is this.  Organizations often get to a point where they realize that their data is now outside their control.  How they respond to this risk and threat is what ensures organizational success or failure.

A significant step in preparedness is awareness in the risks and threats, which is what Brian and I have done in the development of a groundbreaking report called The Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report 2018.  This report is based on a detailed survey of 450 global security practitioners who are focused on cloud security and driving the security requirements around cloud initiatives. Oracle and KPMG have collected the key challenges that these respondents are dealing with and using the combined research from both of Oracle and KPMG’s collective cyber research organizations to provide advance analysis around these challenges.  We then provide a best practice approach to preparing the organization for these lift and shift projects to ensure success.

It is inevitable that Elvis is going to leave the building, and that the king will leave the castle, but it’s also possible to do this in a secure and a risk averse manner with proper controls in depth.  Download the 2018 report to learn better how to prepare your organization today.

If you are attending Oracle OpenWorld 2018 this year, we encourage you to join us as we present the key findings of this highly successful report on Monday at our session “The State of Cloud Security: Keeping Pace at Scale”.   You can also follow me on Twitter @GregJensen10 for more information about the IDC Periscope interview on Monday October 22nd live from OpenWorld that I will share more information on later this week. #OOW18
