Financial Services: Cloudy With a Chance of Data LossImperva's Terry Ray on Application Security Imperatives in the Cloud Age
Banks and other financial services sector organizations need to pay more attention to their security infrastructure and defenses and apply application security safeguards to monitor all of their data - as well as individual files, says Terry Ray, CTO of Imperva.

One challenge, however, is that more financial services organizations are moving more of their systems to the cloud. "The cloud actually enables financial services organizations to accelerate what they try to do - they no longer have to worry about a lot of the infrastructure and architecture that they would have to go with, so it now makes them faster," Ray says. "As things speed up, security needs to speed up along with that."
In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Ray discusses:
- Cybersecurity trends in the financial services sector;
- How the cloud both enables and complicates organizations' information security challenges;
- The insider threat.
Ray is CTO at Imperva, where he's held a variety of positions. Prior to that, he worked for Check Point Software. Ray is a frequent speaker at events in the U.S. and abroad.
