Cloud technologies provide all kinds of benefits to users, from increased flexibility to better use of available resources. But is that at the expensive of security? Deploying in the cloud may mean placing your code on the same physical hardware as a number of unrelated pieces of code running under very different security constraints. What new techniques can we use to gain the same amount of trust in a cloud deployment as we have in bare metal? What can cloud providers do to improve the situation? Is it even possible to trust the cloud?
Anyone with an interest in using cloud technologies without compromising security, including cloud providers themselves. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the scope of cloud security considerations and better equipped to make informed decisions about securing cloud deployments.
This presentation will help stimulate discussion of cloud security, in the long term making it easier for businesses and users to deploy to the cloud without compromising on security in the process.
