Shirief Nosseir, Director, Security Management, CA Technologies
While the benefits of cloud computing are indeed compelling, there still remain real concerns, particularly in the areas of security, privacy and compliance. IT professionals must diligently weigh the risks against the rewards in assessing their cloud computing strategies and implementations.
This presentation explores the impact of cloud computing on security strategies and how it is reshaping the evolution of identity management, information protection, and compliance-related technologies and architectures. In particular, it helps in understanding the various available approaches to cloud security – security to the cloud, for the cloud and from the cloud – and the key challenges facing them.
The presentation also touches on the growing trend towards content-aware identity and access management and the key role it plays in bridging the traditionally separate identity management and information protection silos, how cloud computing is enforcing the link between security management and IT/service management disciplines, and a quick look at cloud security use cases already implemented by some of the early adopters.
