CloudTweaks Media Partner For The Cloud Security Alliance Congress November 16-17

The Cloud Security Alliance Congress

CloudTweaks is pleased to be a Media Partner with the MIS Training Institute and The Cloud Security Alliance Congress.

The Cloud Security Alliance, the world’s leading organization on cloud security and MIS Training Institute are assembling top experts and industry stakeholders to discuss the state of cloud security and best practice for cloud computing. This two day event will consist of four tracks consisting of Legal and Compliance Issues, Federal, Management and Security and Securing the Cloud.

Cloud computing represents the next major generation of computing, as information technology takes on the characteristics of an on-demand utility. The ability to innovate without the constraint of significant capital investments is unleashing a wave of new opportunities that promises to remake every business sector.

While the massive changes underway are unstoppable, our collective responsibility to good governance, compliance, managing risks and serving our customers must remain. Security is consistently cited as the biggest inhibitor to more aggressive cloud adoption. With this in mind, we have created our first annual Cloud Security Alliance Congress, the industry’s only conference devoted to the topic of cloud security. Our speakers’ roster and confirmed attendees represent the key thought leaders and stakeholders shaping the future of cloud security, which is the future of the cloud itself. On November 16-17, 2010, Orlando will be the epicenter of the movement to secure the cloud. Please join us.
