What should CIOs consider when it comes to cloud computing security?

Cloud security.jpgMore and more, cloud-based solutions are becoming a standard approach to your computing needs.  Eventually companies will use the cloud as they do an electricity supply, with similar service levels (availability, security of supply, etc.) and acceptance of use. Indeed, anyone looking to obtain venture capital will find it difficult if cloud computing is not part of their solution.

 

 

 

 

Securely managing the consumerization of IT

By Simon Arnell, Security Analytics Service Director


The consumerization of IT has come a long way since that first discussion, emerging as one of the most significant trends to affect IT in the past 10 years. It’s no longer a question of if enterprises will choose consumerization, it’s a question of how CIOs will manage and secure IT consumerization and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) as part of their overall business strategy.

Security or Assurance? What's in a name?

Looking behind the security terms we use daily. I will consider how three terms which are often interchanged, are really subtly different.

About the Author(s)
  • Manage cyber engineering & architecture team developing security services, security reference architectures, big data security, mobility, cloud, cyber situational awareness and security operation center solutions. Responsible for developing innovative cyber solutions across public sector accounts. Collaborates with HP Labs, HP CTO Organization, product groups and third-party vendors to leverage innovative technologies to deliver the next generation of cybersecurity solutions.
  • A business first, senior executive, with over 20 years of hands on experience in defending banks, governments and corporations against cyberwarfare. My career in security started when I was employed to crack a secure system, which had locked down the boot process, whitelisting of applications and encrypted disks. I linked TeamOffice (an ICL email and collaboration system) with Microsoft Word to send an email which allowed me to do anything the person reading the email could do and send the results back to me, all without there knowledge. Having proved this vulnerability, I worked with Peter Simpson to create Defuse, a tool that blocked inappropriate actions. This successfully blocked Winword Concept, the first known malicous code in the wild. From these begginings I have investigated all aspects of security to provide an holistic approach to security as a business enabler and currently advising organisations on the suitability of the cloud to their needs.
