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.
As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
