Therein lies the rub: How do you gain the benefits of the cloud (to be derived by you and your clients), while effectively managing risk? …Good thing you’re going to attend watch this video.

  • Understand the baseline security features
  • Ensure that your firms stays in compliance

  • Gain insight on reassuring clients of cloud security
