Title: The Art and Science of Building Customer Trust in the Cloud

 

Abstract:

Primary considerations for enterprise customers who want to leverage a public cloud are data security and the effort involved in migrating existing applications. But how do enterprise customers use cloud? How do they evaluate a cloud vendor’s security capabilities? How do they secure their resources in the cloud? What are the pillars of a trusted enterprise cloud? In this talk we will attempt to answer these questions and discuss some security research directions that could enhance the security model in the cloud.
