Good morning! I want to announce our plans for a super meeting, and hope that lots of you enterprise security architects and strategists will be able to attend.
EVENT: Catalyst Cloud Computing Security and Identity Management SIG
LOCATION: San Diego
SPEAKERS: Dan Blum, Burton Group; Cloud Security Alliance (TBA)
DATE: July 28, 2009 8:00 AM
Cloud computing alters business risk and limits organizations’ ability to control, monitor, and audit access to their data. The cloud computing security SIG will bring Burton Group analysts, Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) representatives, end user organizations, and leading edge solution providers to discuss identity management and other issues in the rapidly emerging cloud computing security space. It will provide an opportunity for attendees to come up to speed on issues such as:
- How is cloud computing transforming enterprise security programs and approaches?
- How can identity and access management help to enable cloud adoption and enforce policies on usage and administration?
- What architectures and tools work best to project identity to and from the cloud?
- How should organizations integrate cloud and on-premise IdM and security systems and processes?
