De-risking the cloud through effective risk management
Paul Simmonds
Jericho Forum Board, Jericho Forum

Business confidence in using Cloud Computing is measured against risk, which will be determined by the type of cloud model used. From loss of control of IPR and assets to the meeting regulatory compliance requirements, much has already been said about this; but applying the Jericho Forum "Cloud Cube" model and the Jericho Forum "Commandments" to the problem gives you a consistent framework to determine risk and identify solutions, from identity & entitlement or the need for trust management through to self-defending data.

In this session, Paul will:

  • explain the Jericho Forum's Cloud Cube underlying concepts, with illustrative use-cases
  • highlight the major security challenges these pose
  • explaining why the Jericho Forum believes that "identity" challenges are the key challenge to enabling business confidence in Cloud Computing
  • explain the Jericho Forum's Identity Principles/commandments
  • challenge the identity vendor community to develop effective identity solutions which pass the Jericho Identity commandments test.
