May 10 Videocast With Cloud-Security Experts

By Paula Klein | May 3, 2011

Ensuring data security in the cloud is one of the most heated topics for IT executives so far this year. In fact, many wonder whether the two really can co-exist and if so, how they can fulfill the seemingly conflicting missions—gaining the flexibility and efficiencies of cloud computing and also protecting enterprise data?

To address these concerns, Smart Enterprise Exchange, a global, online community with several thousand IT executive members, gathered a panel of experts to discuss these issues recently at a live event in New York City. Now, on May 10, we want to open the discussion to a wider audience of CIOs so that you can join in and have your questions answered as well.

On Tuesday, May 10, we’ll host a live videocast, where cloud computing thought leaders will continue the debate about the realities of securing the cloud-computing platform. The panel includes: Joseph A. Puglisi, former CIO and current executive at the Stevens Cloud Computing Consortium; Elizabeth Butwin Mann, CISO, Mycroft Inc., and Lina Liberti, Vice President, Security at CA Technologies.

Each will discuss ways that businesses can truly achieve a level of security that will satisfy the skeptics in the organization and also protect sensitive corporate, customer, and business partner data in a distributed environment .  In addition, they’ll offer their own successes building cloud computing environments –as well as the challenges.
MIT Sloan CIO Symposium committee members and others are invited to attend this timely webcast at 1 p.m. eastern time and to submit your own questions for the panel. Join your peers and Register here.
