Second Annual Cloud Computing Security Alliance Congress – November 16-17, 2011

Second Annual Cloud Computing Security Alliance Congress – November 16-17, 2011

In 2010, cloud computing began the shift from a ‘nice to have’ to a ‘need to understand’ technology, as the promises of cost efficiencies and agility have begun to bear fruit.

The Second Annual Cloud Security Alliance Congress, the industry’s only conference devoted to the topic of cloud security, will provide practical solutions for managing the transition to the cloud, and implementing security as a key component rather than an afterthought of this transition. It will provide insight on the models and architectures, the controls and real ‘nuts and bolts’ of what must be done to secure cloud computing.

Our speakers’ roster and confirmed attendees represent the key thought leaders and stakeholders shaping cloud security.

On November 16 & 17, 2011 Orlando will be the epicenter of the very real movement to secure the cloud. Please join us.
