At a recent gathering of over 70 security professionals, the subject of cloud computing and the issues that it raises regarding the security of our networks was discussed. The forum interactively identified numerous issues that must be addressed within the enterprise to ensure that proprietary, personal and private information is protected when using cloud computing technology. The talk described different types of cloud computing solutions and how they allow information to leak from the enterprise. Other cloud computing issues covered were data ownership, legal liability, verification and validation, virtualization, and e-discovery implications. This talk will describe the results of that collaboration and will provide insight into how security professionals are addressing cloud computing in the enterprise. For example, if your organization is using cloud computing services is your present security model going to have to change?
