This is part of an ongoing executive guest blog series -- focused on top trends for RSAC 2020.
Mariano Nunez, CEO of Boston-based cybersecurity firm Onapsis
“For years, companies have been moving portions of their on-premises technology to the cloud to drive business efficiencies, cut costs, and make it easier to do business with colleagues, partners, and customers.
However, as organizations begin to move their business-critical applications to the cloud we’re seeing independent organizations, such as the Department of Homeland Security and Cloud Security Alliance, issue warnings that the stakes are much higher. These applications, which house critical customer, financial and intellectual property data, used to be protected by on-premises firewalls. But as they move to the cloud, CISOs are realizing that the attack surface is increasing, often with discrepancies on who is responsible for protecting the data.
We expect these trends to be at the forefront of discussions during this year’s event. Because of this, we also hope to see organizations discussing the shared responsibility model and ways to better prioritize security for critical business data.”
