(The Hosting News) – CloudPassage™, the leading cloud server security provider, announces that Vice President of Product Management Rand Wacker will be a featured presenter during the Cloud Fair Conference, which takes place April 17-19 in Seattle. Wacker’s session will zero in on the security and compliance challenges of cloud computing and how they can be overcome.
What: “How Cloud Computing Complicates Security and Compliance”
When: Wed., April 18, 2012 at 3 pm PDT
Where: Sheraton Seattle
Security and compliance remain major challenges to adoption of public cloud infrastructure hosting. Technical differences in public cloud environments render many established security models and controls inoperable. In his session, Wacker will discuss how cloud security and compliance is different from traditional approaches, outline a model for securing cloud-based hosting environments and explain best practices for implementing this model.
As the only conference focused on reducing the complexity of cloud computing, Cloud Fair provides business decision-makers with the information they need to solve business problems using secure and scalable cloud computing. Engineers and application developers will learn how to create entirely new, easy-touse cloud-based solutions.
