Managing Cloud Security and Cloud Risk
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Friday, March 26, 2010 TIME: 17:00-18:00 CET, 12pm Eastern
Martin Kuppinger will discuss in this presentation risk-based approaches to manage cloud security. The issue, from his perspective, isn’t that the cloud is inherently insecure. The real issue is to deal in appropriate way with the specifics of the cloud – which includes not only security but as well related issues like availability. In this presentation, Martin Kuppinger will talk about aspects like authentication and authorization in cloud environments, cross-cloud governance approaches and the specific issues around changing providers. He will also highlight his view that risk and services are the two fundamental elements for IT management – even more in these cloudy times.
Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
