Cloud Computing Taxonomies: Associated Risks and Implications for IT

The speaker will address the distinct security challenges posed by each of the three Cloud Computing models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), where hosted servers, software and network equipment are deployed in the cloud; Platforms as a Service (PaaS), where the organization develops its own applications, but does so within the provider’s framework or specified platform; and Software as a Service (SaaS), where the organization trusts its application to both the provider’s hardware and software. What steps should companies take in each case to protect their data? Companies that choose not to use the Cloud model at all run a different risk-- rogue departments doing it anyway. What is a logical, predictable, and mature approach to adopting Cloud Computing? In addition, the speaker will examine recently released security guidelines for Cloud Computing environments.
