Cloud security – a matter of trust?

Your organisation’s data are now everywhere: on your servers and your desktop PCs; on your employees’ smart phones, tablet computers and laptops; on social networks; and in public clouds. Some of these data require special protection but they also need to be accessed remotely, which makes security a considerable challenge. Can you trust public clouds to keep your data safe and secure? Can you trust your own internal systems? And on what criteria and risk management strategies should you base your trust?

Below is the presentation I gave at the April 2012 ’Why Cloud? Why now?’ conference at Chartered Accountants’ Hall, the headquarters of the Institute of Chartered of Accountants of England Wales (ICAEW) in London. You can also download a PDF version of my cloud security presentation from the ICAEW website.
