Never underestimate the vital role of cloud security in your digital landscape
Wesley Niels, Director Cloud EMEA & Partner, DEPT
In today’s tech landscape, cloud security is top of mind by architects, developers, and engineers – as it should be. Advanced tactics like landing zones, infrastructure as code, and secure pipelines are used to minimize the attack surface on organization's digital landscape. But here’s the thing: relying solely on your expertise can be a misconception. Ignoring security tools because they are expensive or assuming everything is already secure can eventually backfire on you.
We've invited Wesley Niels, Director Cloud EMEA at DEPT®, for a chat about the challenges and lessons learned in securing cloud environments. He will talk about the importance of protecting both their own and their client’s setups with a deep dive into how DEPT® uses Trend Micro to apply (security) best practices for their cloud setups.

Pieter Molen, Technical Director Benelux, Trend Micro
In this session, we will demonstrate our approach to cybersecurity within a rapidly evolving threat landscape, addressing the challenges faced by CISOs, SOC staff, and IT Management in highly diverse IT environments. We'll explore how to ensure timely detection of attacks, effective control and communication of risks, and continuous improvement of cyber resilience while optimizing costs.
