It is one thing to be concerned about cloud computing security due to loss of control and quite another to really assess the impact on risk compared to traditional IT environments. Organizations must consider how threats change in the cloud. This session will assess the architectural differences of the cloud and discuss how the changes impact threats.
The panel session will tackle the topic of Private vs. Public Clouds. The panelists will provide insights into the differing challenges of securely deploying and managing applications and workloads into these cloud architectures as well as the unique security obstacles associated with migrating to, from and across Private and Public Clouds. We will take questions from the audience and will provide opinions and guidance for addressing the risks and stumbling blocks.
