This session will give you the tools you need to create cash flow projections that allow you to make solid decisions about growth as well as taking care of existing bills.

Protect Your Business Data in the Cloud

Cloud Storage

More companies are using the cloud for storage, software and even infrastructure services. Cloud services may be effective, but they can leave business, employee and customer data vulnerable.

It’s imperative that businesses develop basic security protocols to safely and securely deploy cloud-computing solutions.

What you can do to make sure your data is secure:

  1. Identify where risks exist. A business must first identify the primary function it’s trying to move to the cloud or where it already may be leveraging cloud-based resources.
  2. Dedicate time and resources to conduct due diligence. Make sure safeguards are used around sensitive data.
  3. Get specific in your service contract. Determine how your provider will respond to requests from law enforcement, regulators and third parties.
  4. Ask where your provider’s servers are located. Some regions may treat data access differently than others.
