Hear from IT leaders, industry experts and developers at the defining event that brings together the entire cloud computing community.
President & Chief Executive Officer, Internet Security Alliance
Larry Clinton is President and CEO of the Internet Security Alliance (ISA). ISA’s mission is to integrate advanced technology with the business needs of the owners and operators of the Internet and to create enlightened public policy that leads to a sustainable and secure Internet. ISA represents major corporations from the Aviation, Banking, Communications, Defense, Insurance, Manufacturing, Technology and Security industries.
ISA has articulated its pro-market approach to cybersecurity through the two editions of its “Cybersecurity Social Contract.” ISA Social Contract was quoted first in the Obama Administration’s Cyberspace Policy Review. In addition, ISA has taken on projects to address cyber security from an enterprise-wide, risk management perspective. The two most recent publications on this topic are “The Financial Management of Cyber Risk,” and “50 Questions Every CFO should be asking about Cyber Security.”
Mr. Clinton is known as one of the most reliable sources on cyber security. He has been featured on CBS News, Fox News, CNN, C-SPAN, and CNBC. He is regularly called upon to testify before both the U.S. House and Senate. Prior to his work with ISA, he was the Vice President of the US Telephone Association (now the US Telecom Association) prior to joining ISA in 2002.
As potential regulation in the US and Europe moves deeper into issues of data privacy and nation al security, this session from the President of the Internet Security Alliance provides a perspective of “what Washington thinks” about the future of Cloud Computing, and what role government should play in its development and use.
Is a cloud risk transfer market or insurance market is necessary, too late, or too soon? SLA slow downs, shared risk debates and liability questions have become more important negotiations than “just security.” This panel will debate the myths of cloud risk and the realities of cloud liability, and challenge the common Silicon Valley perspective that “clouds don’t break.” The “cost to fail” should clouds become major concentrations of data and availability will also be explored.
