Title: Cloud, the future of IT services, and the next level of quality control

Abstract:

About every 10 years a big innovation disrupts the IT industry. This time it is cloud computing. While IT is more accessible than ever, it is also more complex and risky to handle well. The industry needs to mature to an ecosystem of IT providers with demonstrable control over their services.

What is more, that maturity requires some standardization. The Cloud Security Alliance guides the development of a body of knowledge on cloud security (CCSK), and an assessment and certification scheme (STAR) that is geared towards that ecosystem of rapidly innovating online services. The presentation will outline these tools, their status and their current application.
