Topic: Security in the Cloud

It is no surprise that the emergence of cloud computing and virtualization are creating a noticeable buzz across the IT space. Still, the cloud by itself is a mystery to many customers. When information security is introduced to the mix, the picture becomes Cloudy. Add compliance requirements such as PCI, and it's downright Stormy! In this presentation, Mr. Zigweid will discuss ways to achieve data security in a cloud environment. This includes what a cloud customer should watch out for and what they should expect from their provider in order to meet compliance requirements.
