Cloud Security – Dec 11

The (ISC)2 Eastern Massachusetts Chapter will host an interactive discussion around cloud security and an opportunity to network with your Chapter peers. The topic will cover aspects of addressing what cloud solutions organizations are leveraging, secure alternatives to Dropbox & Google, how to assess cloud vendors services, handling contract negotiations, and how to secure that data once it is in the cloud.

EMC IT needed a secure way for 60,000 global employees to sync and share files. It’s common today for employees to use three to five company-owned devices, and expect to access their content from any device. Internal collaboration tools such as eRoom and NAS Shares don’t support file sharing with external partners and customers. More than 10,000 users were using consumer cloud services to get around Outlook file-size limits that makes the company vulnerable to loss of intellectual property. Frank will review the case study for how EMC IT identified the requirements for a hybrid cloud, enterprise grade security, and mobile productivity.
