Cloud Walk Info Graphic

The Terrace Rooftop at the Moonrise Hotel is about to be compromised — and then secured with CenturyLink Cloud encryption. Register and join us as we dive head-first into cloud security, compliance and encryption in a multi-tenant environment. Our partnership with Vormetric, a leader in data security solutions, has created an easily-deployable security solution that translates across platforms and environments and protects data wherever it is stored (even data that isn’t in our cloud). Our main goal is to provide a workshop—a place where people from different backgrounds and companies can come together to learn about security options.

This isn’t a run-of-the-mill presentation and speech; we expect you to earn your drinks and food (there will be plenty). Our Cloud engineers will provide you with a CenturyLink Cloud demo account and an educational license for Vormetric, and then it’s your turn to play (you’ll have to supply the laptop, of course). We will be there to walk you through every step, and we'll even have some cool prizes to hand out at the end of the session.

This workshop doesn’t require you to be a security expert in order to attend. We welcome all kinds of IT pros, novices and everyone in between to check out our blueprints, which take a lot of the back end, time-consuming tech stuff out of the equation.

Our hands-on tutorials will cover:

• How to automatically deploy workloads to the public cloud (CenturyLink)

• How to protect them with policy-based encryption (Vormetric)

• Data protection options, principles and best practices

Encrypting data in the cloud enables your IT team to audit all file access, set data access policies, and prove control through encryption and key management. This event will show you how to demonstrate that the intellectual property, personally identifiable information (PII), electronic protected health information (ePHI), cardholder data (PCI DSS) and other sensitive data your company stores is safe and always under control.

Our security experts will walk you through specific use cases of data encryption and security for HIPPA and PCI compliance. This encryption allows you to retain complete control of keys and encryption mechanisms, which is an important part of compliance with these and many other organizations.
