We all know the cloud is here to stay. Nothing short of a zombie apocalypse or nuclear Armageddon is going to slow down the steady momentum of cloud adoption. We’ve all come to recognize the benefits of the cloud: agility, economic value, and backup/recovery.

The nonprofit Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) promotes best practices for secure cloud computing. CSA gathered expert cloud security stakeholders and produced a clear and actionable set of recommendations in its book, “Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing v4.0.”

Eric Wolff, cloud subject matter expert at Thales eSecurity, will present specific cloud migration use cases and coalesces, with actionable advice and recommendations scattered across security guidance disciplines, paying particular attention to data protection and encryption key management. For each use case, Patrick Hannah, VP of Engineering and co-founder of CloudHesive, a cloud consulting and managed services provider, will provide real-world case studies of customer cloud migrations. We will also hear from our legal expert on what you should be concerned with on your cloud migration.

Be sure to include your questions during registration so our presenters can address your concerns during the webcast. CPE credit is available.
