Overview: Many organizations today are feeling pressure to reduce IT costs and optimize IT operations. Cloud computing is rapidly emerging as a viable means to create dynamic, rapidly provisioned resources for operating platforms, applications, development environments, storage and backup capabilities, and many more IT functions.
A staggering number of security considerations exist that information security professionals need to consider when evaluating the risks of cloud computing. Serious discussion of cloud security starts with a detailed introduction to the various delivery models of cloud computing ranging from Software as a Service (SaaS) to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and everything in between.
Each of these delivery models represents an entirely separate set of security conditions to consider, especially when coupled with various cloud types including: public, private, and hybrid. Managers, auditors, and systems and network administrators will benefit from a discussion into the technologies available for securing cloud-based assets while covering all the policies, processes, and compliance considerations that go along with this major technology shift.
Why Should You Attend: The cloud is everywhere! Well, that's what the marketing folks would have us believe, anyway. For security professionals, migrating systems, applications, and data to the cloud presents a new set of challenges to tackle. What kind of policies do we need, and how can we work with legal teams to incorporate language into contracts? How can we protect sensitive data with encryption, intrusion detection and prevention, and host and network access controls? Can we extend identity and access management tools and processes into the cloud? Senior Fellow and Chief Strategist, Melvin Greer provides clarity around cloud security and details the issues associated with data privacy.
