The Top Three Risks of Moving to the Cloud - and How to Avoid Them
Rodney Hampton - subject matter expert on cloud security

    To kick off 2019 we have a great talk lined up.  Everybody wants to get into, onto, and embrace the cloud.

Rodney Hampton

    Cloud adoption continues to accelerate with Forbes magazine predicting that 83% of enterprise 'workloads' will be in the cloud by 2020.  What are the top three risks of moving to the cloud?  Insufficient policy guidance and planning when migrating IT services to the cloud causes both confusion and missed opportunities. Not identifying threat actors and threat models applicable to how your organization delivers IT services via the cloud leads to investments in the wrong security solutions.  Treating the cloud as an IT problem instead of a strategic business initiative results in lagging performance.  If you want to both mitigate these risks and also unlock tomorrow, this talk is for you.
    Rodney Hampton is a Solutions Architect for the largest cybersecurity solutions integrator and a subject matter expert on cloud security.  Rodney learned programming on his first computer, a Commodore Vic-20, in 1982 and was a computer enthusiast long before I.T. became his career.  He now has 18 years of professional experience working his way up and over from web development to infrastructure and finally to security.  Before joining Optiv, he was the Security Manager for a Fortune 500 oil and gas company.  Rodney's formal education includes an Associate of Science degree in Business, Magna Cum Laude, a BA in History from The Ohio State University, and a JD, Magna Cum Laude, from Western Michigan University.  Rodney is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and he holds several other vendor-specific certifications.  He and his wife live near Nashville where they raise their three children.
