Establishing security-driven governance in the Cloud

November 05, 2020
10:00 am - 10:30 am

As organisations increase Microsoft Azure adoption, so too does the need for increased control and security. While the ease-of-use within Azure is compelling with shared infrastructure responsibility, native tooling, and an opportunity to deploy applications rapidly, there is not a one size fits all approach to governance and this can result in sprawl if there is no set policy in place. Inevitably, this becomes operationally and financially burdensome to organisations as policies no longer adhere to defined business objectives. Not only does this place increased pressure on IT teams, but it also reduces the agility of an Azure adoption strategy.
