Topics to be addressed at the NIST cloud computing forum include the cloud's trustworthiness and standards. Google Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf and NIST Director Patrick Gallagher also will speak.
Interest in cloud computing is on the rise, but security concerns linger. This white paper addresses how to mitigate those risks, including:
Developing a secure, holistic infrastructure that encompasses both physical and virtual computing systems;
Establishing high-level information security policies for...
Organizations investigating cloud computing must consider many different options, including public, private and hybrid clouds. And each approach poses different risks. This white paper addresses:
Choosing a cloud computing solution;
Addressing the risks associated with moving to the cloud;
Planning IT services...
Security professionals at organizations adopting cloud computing solutions must put in place policies, processes and relationships that will result in keeping enterprise data safe. This industry perspective recommends:
Adopting high-level information security policies as well as granular procedures and standards...
Securing data in the public cloud isn't much different from other types of IT security. "It's the same advice we give for almost any deployment of IT because it is still the right thing to do," NIST Senior Computer Scientist Tim Grance says.
"Okay, we have bad guys that might be in the system, but at least we're watching them every minute and hopefully detecting them before they do anything too bad," RSA Chief Technology Officer Bret Hartman says.
