(The Hosting News) – Layered Tech Chief Risk Officer Jeff Reich will give a presentation on cloud security challenges and solutions at the ACA Annual Convention & Expo on July 15 in San Diego. The ACA convention brings together professionals from the credit and collection industry including compliance officers, general counsel, technology executives and others with a keen interest in information security issues.
Reich’s presentation will help conference attendees understand the major types of cloud services and how security and compliance risks vary across the different cloud types. Reich will show how leading cloud providers mitigate those risks, and discuss what businesses with stringent security and compliance requirements should look for in a cloud provider. While addressing the risks associated with moving critical business data into the cloud, Reich will also discuss the distinctive advantages that cloud services have over conventional on-premise infrastructures when it comes to safeguarding data.
Joining Reich as co-presenters will be Rick Clark, Corporate Security Manager for Ontario Systems, a leading provider of technology and services for accounts receivable management and healthcare collections; and Ryan Egerdahl, Information Security Officer for Convergent Outsourcing. Ontario Systems is a client of Layered Tech’s managed hosting and cloud services, and Convergent Outsourcing is an Ontario Systems customer. Clark and Egerdahl will share insights from their own organizations’ experiences with data security in the cloud.
“Even though the cloud has been around for a few years, not many people understand what makes up the cloud, how it works and how it can be compliant and secure,” said Reich. “This session will help close that gap.”
As CRO for Layered Tech, Reich has developed and implemented risk mitigation and compliance strategies for clients in security-sensitive sectors including financial services, healthcare, and government. In cloud environments as well as dedicated hosting environments, Layered Tech’s data security technologies and practices have succeeded to the point that Layered Tech offers clients a guarantee of compliance with strict security standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and FISMA.
Reich, Clark, and Egerdahl’s presentation will take place the afternoon of July 15. The ACA Annual
Convention & Expo is from July 14-16 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. For more information about the 2013 ACA Convention visit: http://events.acainternational.org/default.aspx
