Technology Now

In this episode we are looking at how the public sector is embracing the hybrid cloud model and what steps need to be taken to be certain our information, as members of the public, is kept safe.
It’s a big issue. In 2021 and 2022 the largest percentage of cyber threats and attacks were reported by governments and the public sector, according to the European Parliament.

So, what operational security strategies are being tailored for public sector needs? How does regulation differ between the public and private sector when it comes to hybrid cloud security? And how can leaders in health, education, the military, public transport and law enforcement ensure that adopting a hybrid cloud model is a secure option?

To fill us in is Simon Leech, Director at Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Center of Excellence for Cybersecurity and Digital Risk Management.
