Your Cloud or Mine? Exploring Data Security in the Cloud

About this talk

This discussion will tackle the complex issues around data ownership and control in the hands of cloud users at the consuming organization, cloud administrators at the cloud provider, law enforcement, intelligence agencies and a pantheon of adversaries. When sensitive information exists outside of the traditional internal IT environment, it has the potential to deprecate the ability to properly protect and monitor it for indicators of compromise. Whether it’s the virtualization layer in a private cloud or the APIs and management layer of a public cloud, there is an entire new class of privileged infrastructure and privileged users—creating additional opportunity for failure. Adversaries clearly see cloud as an area of opportunity—all the eggs in one basket! Rather than optimally addressing these issues, most organizations try to (unsuccessfully) map legacy controls from traditional data centers into the cloud. This session will cover the real issues and ideas in how we assess and manage security in these environments. If losing control and ownership of your data in the cloud is slowing down your cloud consumption, we discuss how to retain control in these new environments.
