As the use of cloud computing continues to grow, the issue of cloud security has become increasingly important. Cloud computing offers a range of potential, but it also introduces new security challenges. We’ll explore your initiatives tied to cloud, including how you’re “making the case” for cloud migration, and the strategies you’ve used to mitigate risk. If time allows, and the group is interested, we may also talk about trends and developments in cloud security, and best practices for organizations that are looking to adopt cloud computing.
