‘For cloud computing to reach the full potential promised by the technology, it must offer solid information security’ – ENISA

‘Cloud computing may multiply the benefits of the Internet by a factor of 10... but we may also face 10 times the challenges’ - World Economic Forum

‘Our goal is to build on existing standards wherever possible, in order to extend ongoing industry collaboration and progress around identity to the cloud.  By utilizing existing efforts and organizations, we'll help maintain security and privacy in cloud computing’ – OASIS

Trust is a core element needed to enable cloud computing to reach its greatest potential. Trust - including privacy, identity assurance and compliance - is a decision factor for business and government users considering public and hybrid cloud-based services and infrastructures for their most sensitive applications.

For some enterprises, it is too early to trust public cloud computing solutions. Others are clearly moving to the cloud to achieve a significant competitive advantage.  However, there is a general recognition that broad cloud computing adoption confronts many user community concerns.  The good news is that there is growing understanding of the specific issues that need to be tackled to ensure greater trust in the cloud, such as security, privacy, governance, interoperability, and portability. Likewise, industry has undertaken a number of important initiatives, including standards development that will be vital in support of trusted cloud computing environments.

This “In Cloud We Trust” session will examine the core trust issues associated with the emerging cloud computing environment, as well as highlight major initiatives underway that are building blocks to trusted, cloud-based services.
