FROC2010 Abstract McClellan
The Presentation: "Building a Secure, Compliant Cloud for the Enterprise"
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing has very quickly grown from an exotic concept to a known solution, with countless successful implementations. However, concerns remain about some aspects of clouds. Security and regulatory compliance are at the top of the list. When properly managed and configured, a cloud solution can be as safe, secure and compliant as any in-house solution running on dedicated servers.
This session will address the sources of confusion as they apply to IaaS implementations and outline the practices and technologies available to keep clouds safe and compliant in the areas where they do have unique vulnerabilities and requirements.
