FROC2010 Abstract Tucker
The Presentation: "Cloudy with a chance of hack"
Cloud computing is a cost effective and efficient way for enterprises to automate their processes. However organizations need to be aware of the pitfalls of the many cloud solutions out there - one of the main being security. Most cloud applications were built for ease of use and without security necessarily in mind. Companies need to be asking their solution providers about the security measures used in developing the application and get an independent verification to make sure there are no gaping holes. With over 75% of attacks occurring through the Web, any attack through these applications can lead to leakage of confidential information and embarrassment.
