We live in a cloud-first world. What’s more, that world increasingly leans on multiple clouds for success. Whether it’s public, private or hybrid environments, organizations are leveraging the benefits of the multi-cloud world to drive operational efficiencies, scale quickly and expand growth. Multiple clouds allow for greater flexibility, and the ability to leverage the most appropriate cloud-services from different providers.

Yet while the benefits are clear, securing multi-cloud environments is complex. Securing workloads and protecting data in a consistent fashion across diverse cloud providers, technologies and use cases remains a challenge. And with a recent report suggesting 84% of companies today use multiple clouds, it’s a common issue across all industry verticals.

So how do you deploy effective security for a multi-cloud world? How do you secure both access to the cloud and usage of it? How do you get greater visibility into those environments and reduce the risk of attack? And what do the tools and methodologies for greater cloud security look like?

Join us as we explore how a vision of “visibility and protection everywhere” can be realized to secure access and usage of the cloud, and give organizations confidence that all employees and data are protected.

Discussion Topics

  • What challenges are you facing (or have you faced) in implementing cloud security solutions? What are your concerns? And for those who have already adopted cloud, how did you overcome those challenges?
  • What does the advent of the multi-cloud era mean for you in terms of security? How are you managing security across multiple cloud environments? How do you get visibility?
  • Where do you see the largest benefit in moving your security architecture to the cloud? How can it help you address concerns such as ransomware, malware and C2 callbacks?

Guest speaker


Neil Erath, Vice President Global Cloud Security, Chubb

Neil has been working for Chubb since 2001 and is currently responsible globally for cloud security, reporting in to Chubb’s CISO with a “dotted line” to the CTO. In this role, he is focused on Chubb’s security program with respect to their consumption of SaaS as well as securing applications being developed and deployed in the cloud. Prior to that, he was responsible for global security architecture and engineering, a role that evolved out of continued security work as part of IT infrastructure.  Neil also represents security on the global Enterprise Architecture team.

A self-proclaimed ‘jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none’, Neil has worked on a variety of platforms as a software developer in various industries from defense to integration middleware, spanning more years than he would care to admit. In his spare time he volunteers for his local fire company, and serves as the one person IT support shop for his church.
