We’re excited to announce that our CISO, Mark Houpt, will be speaking at the event – check out his speaking engagement below and the full agenda here.

Seminar Overview: What to Expect When Conducting Risk Assessments of Your Cloud Provider

Join Mark for this informative session that will explore how to work with a cloud service provider and maintain auditing standards. As the CISO of a Cloud Service Provider, Mark will describe what you should expect and not expect from your provider and how to draw boundaries and expectations from the very beginning. The discussion will go even deeper and help you understand the “why” of what you should and should not expect when it comes to auditing from a Cloud Service Provider and how a provider should address specific compliance regimens (PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX etc.). There will be plenty of time for questions and answers where you can pick Mark’s brain and experience with specific scenarios you have within your environment. This session will be designed for both those that conduct audits and internal compliance teams as well as those seeking new providers.
