Session Details:

Session 1: Cloud Security Alliance-Defining Cloud Computing

Dov Yoran will provide an introduction to the Cloud Security Alliance and updates to current research activities.

James Tiller will provide a framework for the day by defining cloud computing, its attributes and commonly existing models (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS).

Session 2: Panel I Discussion – Cloud: Legal & Regulatory issues

Data security, integrity, identity management, access controls, and eDiscovery are regulatory challenges that must continue to be addressed in a cloud environment.  Federal and state laws concerning the integrity and permanence of both personal and corporate financial data are quite strict. Potential cloud users with sensitive IP, personal information or international data must confront compliance hurdles before considering such offerings. How does one manage and contractually transfer these risks? Our panel will discuss both the familiar and lesser-known regulatory obligations that Cloud users must consider before leveraging the cloud.  Take away from this session practical pointers on managing legal risk as your CIO and CFO press for movement toward the Cloud.

Session 3: Panel II Discussion – Approaches to implementing cloud solutions

Learn from leading industry executives and enterprise security decision makers on their perspective to implementing cloud computing solutions.  What steps have they taken to protect their organization’s data and infrastructure?  How have they prioritized which cloud services to take advantage of?  What are some of their success stories and lessons learned?  Learn this and more during the upcoming ISSA session on cloud computing.
