Security in the Cloud

Presented by

Mike Masnick, Jake Kaldenbaugh & Sam Quigley

About this talk

With so much going on in the "cloud computing" space today, what does that mean for IT folks, who are used to having full control over the technology being used by employees? How can they make sure that the services that employees are using are secure and protected? And, for companies building their own online services that they hope will be used in enterprises around the globe, how should they best prepare to build a system that meets the security requirements of in-house IT staff? On top of that, beyond traditional "technology" security, there are serious legal security questions as well. How protected, legally speaking, is the data stored in the cloud? Is it covered under different laws? And do the answers to these questions depend on if you’re "webifying" legacy systems as compared to building entirely new systems? We’ll answer a bunch of these questions with a new webinar that we’re putting on next Tuesday, May 11th at 9am PT/noon ET. Mike Masnick will be moderating the discussion, and will be joined by two of the most knowledgeable folks on this topic: Jake Kaldenbaugh of CloudStrategies, and formerly an exec at NEC, where he drove early strategic efforts focusing on virtualization and cloud computing. Sam Quigley of Emerose, a leading expert on cloud security, who previously was a founding member of EDS’s security and privacy services group, an open source developer at security appliance vendor Astaro, the sole security person at Xign (which became JP Morgan Treasury Services) and Vice President of security and operations at Wesabe, the online financial startup.
