    Yesterday's theme of Transition to the Cloud was highlighted by David Lenoe at Adobe talking about vendor assessment and specifically the questions for cloud. Brendan Hannigan, CEO at Sonrai took everyone through de-risking digital transformation with cloud and Diana Kelly from Microsoft shared the latest malware attacks seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. There was also an exclusive interview with the Sophos team on digital transformation when transitioning to the cloud.
