Great post, David.  Security is one of the key challenges in public sector -- especially in the context of a cloud-based solution.  Have shared my thoughts on this in Combating Enterprise Security Challenges in the Public Sector.

Thanks Nadhan,

 

Yes, security is a very big challange within public sector, especially for the Feds.  In fact, the IT Reform plan published by OMB has assigned responsibility for cloud security to the Department of Homeland Security.  They are ultimatly reponsibile for providing a solution for securing the cloud for other Agencies.   You can see the plan on www.cio.gov, some progress has been made but no Federal wide solutions are available to my knowledge.

 

Your post outlines many of the challanges that apply and outlines how HP can help.   I think the testing of cloud applications for security is one area that could benefit many Fedeal Agencies today, especially if they provide a government wide service.    

 

I believe if public sector partners with private sector solution providers for cloud,  like HP, many of the challanges can be resolved.  The trick is making changes to how the they procure, govern and evaluate/enhance cloud services to assure results.
