Speaker: David Sims & Rick Moffatt
Topic: Information Assurance in the Cloud
Abstract: Hosting business-critical processes “in the cloud” creates new risk which must be addressed to protect business interests. If you put too many of your eggs in one basket, especially when you don’t own the basket, without a true understanding of risk and appropriate mitigating controls, you could end up with an omelet. Security best practices have universal application and should be considered as we shift focus to the virtualized world. This presentation summarizes examples of attacks that have taken place “in the cloud” and lessons we can all learn from them.
