Weaving Cloud Assurance into Education IT

The education community is constantly striving for innovation: innovation in the ways we educate our youth, innovation with respect to how society absorbs new knowledge, innovation in the way that we bring that knowledge to the classroom. An enormous factor in that innovation is the advent of cloud technologies and the ability to leverage data to strengthen the educational experience. With benefits like increased agility, better data management and governance, and streamlined operation, it’s obvious how cloud technology enables more intuitive and data-driven educational decisions. That said, many struggle with understanding how to effectively execute this integration safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

The education arena is known for facing struggles with budget availability and is often challenged to do more with less. This includes their IT strategy, even though sensitive student data simply cannot be threatened or compromised. This challenge begs the question of how to strategically implement a cloud strategy while meeting budgetary restrictions and data safety expectations and regulations.

This is where the need for a well-oiled cloud assurance program comes into play. In an upcoming webinar, “How to Develop and Implement an Effective Cloud Assurance Program”, FireEye’s Ron Bushar, Vice President and CTO – Government Solutions, will explain steps and best practices to building a cloud assurance program. With this structure in place, education IT decision makers can confidently move forward with their cloud integration plan of action and abide by increasing expectations and regulations of government bodies.

In this webinar, Bushar will walk attendees through the following topics:
• Identifying roles and responsibilities of government, service provider, and third-party stakeholders
• Assessing existing traditional on-premises key controls against cloud services and establishing a cloud-adapted risk assessment process
• Implementing requirements baselines, risk assessments, and approaches to addressing unique risk scenarios
• Selecting a cloud service delivery and deployment model

This webinar will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 11:00 AM PT/ 2:00 PM ET. You can register for the webinar here and learn how you can swiftly and effectively implement your organization’s cloud assurance program.
