Abstract:

Some IT security professionals argue that cloud computing security issues are no different than traditional IT security concerns, while others claim that virtualization and elasticity create new security challenges.  Whichever group is right, cloud users and providers still need to understand the risks of such environments and the evolving best practices to address those risks.  This talk will briefly review cloud computing architecture and focus on current security concerns.
