Security Compliance in a Cloud

April 19, 2010 Added by:Mark Gardner

For this inaugural post I have decided to tackle, what I perceive to be one of the biggest conundrums within the growth area of Cloud Computing, Security Compliance. I use the term conundrum, not that I believe for one second that Cloud Computing does not need Security and some form of compliance, far from it, but that suddenly these seem to have become show stopping issues for the uptake...

Privacy and Cloud Computing Challenges

April 16, 2010 Added by:Rebecca Herold

The concept of “cloud computing” is not well known by most folks. Certainly not the personnel using a vast and growing number of cloud computing applications, without even know it, from business networks. If they don’t know what they are using, then how can they know the information security and privacy risks involved?

Is Security a Curse for the Cloud Computing Industry?

March 25, 2010 Added by:Richard Stiennon

In 1975 my father, a doctor, was approached by some entrepreneurs. They had a brilliant idea. They were going to purchase a mainframe computer and sell computing on a timeshare basis to anyone who wanted to connect to it.  Charges would be based on compute cycles and applications would be provided pre-loaded.  Sound familiar?  That was cloud computing.   Today’s clou...

February 11, 2010 Added by:K S Abhiraj

Cloud computing has become a huge ‘buzz-phrase’ in last few years, but you’d be forgiven for not knowing what the term actually means indeed. Different people interpret “cloud computing” in different ways. That’s the dilemma because computing “in the cloud” may be important for you and your organization, but if it’s not clear what it actually m...

All Your Clouds Are Belong to… Not You

January 08, 2010 from: AEON Security Blog

After reading ENISA’s “Benefits, risks and recommendations for information security” [1], I am convinced even more so now than I ever was before, against the cloud. For those unaware of the acronym, ENISA stands for European Network and Information Security Agency. It can be viewed as Europe’s version of the USA’s NIST. Their document is 125 pages, with 71 pages encom...

January 05, 2010 from: AEON Security Blog

In an article entitled “Cloud computing is a trap, warns GNU founder Richard Stallman” [1] the context couldn’t have been worded better:“It’s stupidity.

Cloud Security: Want Some Fake Fries With That Vapor Shake?

December 30, 2009 from: AEON Security Blog
