In this 90 minute webcast, the three coauthors of "Cloud Security and Privacy" (recently published by O'Reilly) will take a deep dive into cloud security issues and focus on three specific aspects: (1) data security; (2) identity management in the cloud, and; (3) governance in the cloud (in the context of managing a cloud service provider with respect to security obligations). Each of these three topics will be covered in a 30 minute segment that will include a presentation and Q&A with the audience. Join us for this in–depth look at three of the most discussed security topics related to cloud computing.
