When Worlds Collide: Security in a Cloud-Enabled Environment

Many companies have gone "To the Cloud!" and many more are planning to move services into the cloud. This shift is typically focused on associated cost savings and reduced overhead. The question remains though: how does the cloud impact security?

This session covers key cloud security concepts, some common hybrid cloud scenarios, and the potential security issues with leveraging cloud services. Also explored are ways to avoid common pitfalls, how to appropriately balance operations and security in a cloud world, and how to retain insight into cloud-based user (and potential attacker) activity.
