ControlCircle launches ‘BYOD Corporate Security’ learning resource

First educational forum and seminar series built to address CIO security concerns

ControlCircle, a leading UK managed services provider, has launched an online 'BYOD Corporate Security' learning resource centre, including whitepapers, best practice guides, case studies, and details of events, to address the growing security concerns of CIOs.

Survey findings and feedback from previous seminars have confirmed that loss of data control and associated security issues is the number one area of concern for CIOs and is fast becoming the main focus point in evaluation of cloud providers.

CIO survey findings include:

  • 39% of respondents are concerned about security and compliance

  • 27% of respondents fear the loss of control over data and applications

  • 17% of respondents are anxious concerning data location and governance

Tim Cox, CTO at ControlCircle notes, "The expansion into cloud means that the existing security paradigm - being able to protect at the platform logical layer - becomes less important as the focus changes to protecting the data itself." He adds, "Therefore, a comprehensive approach to security that is appropriately designed to address data-oriented risks is even more critical for enterprises that often deploy very valuable and sensitive data in the cloud."

With that in mind, ControlCircle has built the BYOD Corporate Security resource site which includes; A Comprehensive Guide to Cloud Security, A 10 point guide to controlling corporate data, Regulating BYOD - the device-to-data culture shift, and a LUUP case study, a case study with a major organisation in the payments industry.

"The security buying and deployment habits of the past decade, where different solutions are collected and bolted together in a piecemeal fashion, are costly and unmanageable. Therefore, security protection itself has to adapt," comments Carmen Carey, CEO at ControlCircle. "In response to this, we created the 'BYOD Corporate Security' learning resource centre to help identify what aspects contribute to a secure cloud solution, and the particular steps that can be taken to ensure enterprise grade cloud security is achieved," adds Carey.

ControlCircle will be exploring these issues and concerns further at its Controlling Corporate Data seminar with headline speaker Brian Wall, Editor of Computing Security, presenting 'How to avoid BYOD becoming Bring Your Own Disaster'. Other noted industry speakers include Simon Hansford, CTO at Skyscape Cloud Services, Ian Porteous, Technical Manager for the Channel Operations at Check Point and Carmen Carey, CEO at ControlCircle. The Controlling Corporate Data seminar will take place on 18 October, 2012, at The Andaz Hotel, view the agenda and register to attend here.
