    Security threats – in email and beyond

    Mimecast processes 22 billion emails every month for 19,000+ customers. Customer #1 is Mimecast themselves, where CIO, Grant Hodgkinson, has to remain one step ahead of the adversaries. These threats go way beyond email, as they do for any other organization. During this session, Grant will provide a view into the security threats his team faces – in email and beyond – and how they have developed a strategy to combat existing and new threats facing today’s global cloud infrastructure.

    Grant will also share his views on how to engage cloud and cloud security providers as many organizations are grappling with the difficult transition to pivot to this technology model.
