This thought leadership program aims to address the challenges and engage with public sector entities across various verticals to demonstrate how Cloud Platforms and Cloud enabled products are architected and are secure by default and can be used effectively to secure operations.
Vinayak Godse, CEO, Data Security Council of India, said, “Security considerations are absolutely critical to reaping the innovative benefits and possibilities enabled by the Cloud…. This will create the much-needed space for enabling security led deliberations and serve as a platform to host successful cloud adoption journeys for embracing cloud transformation. We are looking at this initiative as an industry driven intervention which will bring together the stakeholders from across the cloud ecosystem and bolster the agenda of security in the cloud paradigm by promoting adoption of best practices.”
The initiative is supported by an advisory committee comprising leaders across industries including technology services, consulting, cloud service providers, ecommerce, and digital payments who would further guide and extend support towards meeting the goals.
“At Google Cloud we are committed to helping our customers navigate securely as they embark on their cloud journeys. The initiative with DSCI is one step towards unraveling the power and flexibility of the cloud and its many benefits to enterprises of all sizes,” said Mark Johnston, Security Leader, Office of the CISO at Google Cloud.
With this initiative, DSCI and Google Cloud aims to create a platform that will understand key drivers, challenges with cloud adoption and develop evidence-based deliberations and case studies to drive cloud adoption and derive actionable insights, along with improving collaboration between various stakeholders in the cloud ecosystem.
