In the last installment of our series, we wrap up our conversation with Greg Jensen with a discussion around the future of cloud security and how leaders can help their businesses stay informed in the security space with the help of the annual Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report.
Every 11 seconds an organization suffers a cybersecurity attack and it's only expected to get much worse. So, it's critical for those that are responsible for securing these organizations to understand the challenges that they face and identify potential solutions to these issues. I had the pleasure of speaking with Greg Jensen, Sr Principal Director of Cloud Security at Oracle about his take on the current state of cloud security and the Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report.
As we look back across 2019, organizations saw a tremendous increase in not only the use of cloud for business, but the valuation of the data and applications hosted in the cloud. These predictions highlight what many organizations will experience in 2020 when they focus only on secure strategies, and not placing a greater focus on the inclusion of a security-minded culture.
Just as in the Star Wars Galaxy the cybersphere is a dangerous place and attacks can come in any guise and from any location just when you are least expecting it. And like the Dark Side, hackers are constantly trying out new techniques to get their hands on what they perceive as having value.
Historically, CISO's were tasked with carrying the weight of protecting an organization from a security, privacy, and risk perspective. CISO's today are challenged with a unique situation, they can work with the business or be left behind. Security is now a company wide responsibility and CISOs have more opportunity than ever to push their organization toward innovation.
