Mention cloud and undoubtedly it's only a matter of minutes before someone raises the question of security. Add analytics and the profusion of proprietary data to the mix, and it's readily apparent why safeguarding cloud-based analytics solutions is so critical.
And that's why the latest session of Internet Evolution's 7 Days of Executive Education (7DEE) is such a vital element of our series. Join us here at 2:00 p.m. ET today (Wednesday, April 3) when Dion Hinchcliffe, chief strategy officer at Dachis Group, leads us through "Securing Cloud-Based Analytics."
After all, while midmarket firms are now heeding the allure of analytics, these solutions require access to an organization's invaluable business and customer data. Organizations must therefore understand and protect this resource, including areas such as data control, security, and governance when they select a SaaS analytic provider. The session will cover the security fundamentals of cloud-based analytics and also explore some top strategies and techniques that help keep organizations secure while simultaneously providing them with all the benefits of the cloud-based analytics.
Hinchcliffe works with Fortune 500 and Global 2000 firms to help them prepare for doing business in the 21st century. He contributes to our sister site InformationWeek, has written several books, and is a frequent speaker at industry events like CeBit and the Agile Executive Forum.
Our series wraps up on Thursday, when IBM Vice President of Marketing Edward Abrams joins us to discuss "A Bright Future for Analytics in the Cloud."
And don't forget, if you've missed any of the prior episodes they are all archived on Internet Evolution so you can listen and review them on demand, as well as share them with colleagues.
