Did you mean: 

Are you "let's put everything in the cloud" or are you "we'll never use such an insecure thing"?


One of the key concerns about public cloud remains security. And yet the cloud providers say that they have dozens of security PhDs versus the average IT department which has one person at best. They say that they are obsessed with security and only have to impliment it a handful of services, versus the average IT department that has thousands of different things that could be attacked. 


This is obviously an emotive as well as a technical issue. We need some facts in order to make good business decisions - we can't keep saying, "I'm concerned about security" without finding out the truth. 


A DISCOVER session I saw may help us here.


Title : How secure is your cloud? What you need to know and ask
Session ID : TB2672 
Roughly 47 percent of today¹s businesses are using cloud-based software applications, many of which contain sensitive data like customer information and sales records.
Unfortunately, companies often ignore the security risk and compliance and privacy issues that come with cloud applications.
Join us for an in-depth review of the kind of questions you need to be asking your cloud provider. We¹ll cover different types of
cloud, from SaaS to PaaS to IaaS. And you¹ll walk away with a strong understanding of what ³cloud² means and what its security implications are.
