Learn the security pitfalls of the cloud, and how to protect yourself against them, in the first session of 7 Days of Executive Education (7DEE) on Thursday -- that's today!
Then, tomorrow, dispel some of the fog around cloud computing in our second session. (This was supposed to be our first session, earlier this week, but a lady named Sandy had different ideas.)
Today's session: Getting Security Right in the Cloud at 2:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. PT).
Private, public, and hybrid clouds each present their own security challenges, with their own requirements for firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, access control, encryption, and key management. Security is already hard enough without complicating things further by using the cloud. But it is possible to secure the cloud -- learn how in this session.
Our lecturer is Richard Stiennon, founder and chief research analyst at IT-Harvest. Richard also maintains the popular security blog ThreatChaos. Previously, Stiennon was VP of Research at Gartner, where he covered security topics. His first book, Surviving Cyber War, was published earlier this year.
Then, Friday at 2:00 p.m. ET, join us for Dispelling the Fog About Cloud Computing. Find out the basics of software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, and infrastructure-as-a-service, and the differences among them. Learn about public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds. Explore the common reasons for the adoption of cloud computing, and what issues need to be resolved before cloud would be universally adopted. Our lecturer for that session is Daniel Kusnetzky, analyst and founder of Kusnetzky Group.
Barring further disruption from ill-behaved young ladies, we'll see you later today, tomorrow, and at the rest of 7DEE over the next two weeks.
