First things first. I want to offer a big "Thank you" to the 1,000 or so people who joined my webinar earlier this week on the topic of Cloud Computing Security. I was completely amazed by the turnout and sincerely hope that the talk was both entertaining and thought provoking! I also wanted to thank Subra Kumaraswamy, Joel Weise, and Luc Wijns for their herculean efforts answering the fast streaming list of questions from the audience! Clearly, this is a lot of interest out there for Cloud Computing and security! For those who were not able to join the live event, the presentation and replay are both now available. If you have a chance to check them out, please be sure to send along your feedback! We definitely want to hear from you!
On the heels of this event, I did want to let you know about another web-based event to be held on September 30, 2009. At this event, Simon Gallagher (a Senior Technical Architect @ ioko) and I will join forces to talk about Cloud Security. The title of our talk will be "Decision Tree: Key questions to ask your Cloud Service Provider". Our focus, as your might guess, is on the key issues and questions that must be addressed before moving to the Cloud. Our goal is to leave you with practical ideas and actual questions that you may want to consider when deciding if/when/and how to move services and data into the Cloud. The announcement includes all of the details.
This event is actually a part of a BrightTalk Cloud Security Summit that will feature talks from several other Cloud Computing vendors, consumers and industry groups such as the Cloud Security Alliance. Should be an information-packed day! Hope to see you (virtually) there!
