Topic: Building Business Resiliency in the Cloud 

Summary: Cyber Security + Data Management = Business Resilience
In today's digitally driven world you often hear people say that “data is the new oil” or “data is the new gold”. It's a great way to express that it's super important and you really can't conduct normal business operations without it. With data being so important to business operations you have to be resilient. Not just to external cyberattacks but natural disasters, insider threat and configuration mistakes. Resiliency requires having the right tools and processes in place to protect the data but you also require an in-depth business understanding of what the data is doing for your business and where critical data is stored. This means that security and data management operations can no longer operate in silos from one another. They have to talk across the aisle, share information and have an in-depth understanding on how each plays the business or business resiliency.
