Cloud security is not an oxymoron. Quote : I get it: there is a lot of data that can’t move to the cloud, not because IT managers don’t understand the issues, but because they need to comply with regulations that were designed before we understood the scope of our security problems. But if you think that your IT staff can protect you better than the security teams at the major cloud providers, think again.

Observations from the Landmark CIO Summit 2014

The Investing Edge

On Wednesday I attended the Landmark CIO Summit 2014 in New York City. There was also an interesting common theme within security. These execs felt that trying to eradicate APTs was a battle they would never win, and instead they should focus on protecting and containing high value data by securing it in restricted areas. And that means there is still a tremendous amount of opportunity for new startups to play in the white hot security sector.

In the PR war over security, the cloud is losing

David Linthicum

As Computerworld reported , a panel at the RSA Security Conference last week agreed that, if cloud providers are vetted properly, most enterprise workloads and data are safe with those providers.
