Web Conference Overview:
They say the only constant is change. In information security, threat vectors keep changing and attackers keep finding the security gaps in old and new technologies. Is the current cloud paradigm yet another example of this? Has the cloud paradigm introduced issues which show that the security industry keeps playing catch-up or are things really changing? In an attempt to demonstrate this, this session will discuss the Cloud threats and current security methods.

"Cloudy” Computing Assessing the Risks and Applying Controls
Presentation Overview:Technology architectures change so much that it is enticing to believe that we must rethink our security controls in support of it. The truth is, if we understand how risk works and we understand how the controls we apply address those risks, then we are on solid ground and can apply these principles in action. This presentation will use Cloud Computing as a backdrop for applying risk assessment techniques and discuss how cloud architectures might affect the control environment.
