Roeseler

1:30pm-2:30pm

Full Cloud Migration: How One Organization Went All In and the Benefits They Achieved

Armin Roeseler, CIO, DirectBuy


Many people consider themselves as part of the cloud if they deliver a point solution (like SalesForce). In 2014, DirectBuy completely migrated into the cloud last year and have a pretty good transition story to tell. Hear directly from their IT leadership as to how they completely embraced the cloud and migrated all of their applications, including homegrown proprietary applications.









2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

Martin 

3:00pm-4:00pm

Confessions of an IT Outsourcer

Elizabeth Martin, Director of Security, Acxiom IT Outsourcing  

As we all know, the increase in adoption of cloud-based services has changed the landscape of implementing security controls. Historically, organizations engaged with 3rd parties for services so security controls were not addressed contractually. The onslaught of cloud-based services, combined with regulatory changes, has significantly altered the industry and organizations are now enforcing security controls through contractual obligations.

In this session attendees will learn about:

  • The most prevalent security controls and requirements being included in contracts
  • The security controls that can be effectively enforced through contractual language
  • Examples of requirements that are not effective in protecting your assets and data
  • How to avoid a “one-size fits all” set of requirements while maintaining efficiency
  • Implementing an enforcement model to validate that security requirements are being met
  • How best to leverage your legal team to manage negotiations and verbiage, resulting in a Win Win for both sides
