I gave this presentation at CloudOpen Europe in Edinburgh earlier this month. Here's the abstract:
As an industry, we’ve mostly moved on from naive notions about cloud computing being inherently “safe” or “risky.” However, more sophisticated discussions require both greater nuance and greater rigor. This presentation takes attendees through frameworks for evaluating and mitigating potential issues in hybrid cloud environments, discusses key risk factors to consider, and describes some of the relevant standards and provider certifications. This is a broad and sometimes complex topic. However, it’s very manageable if individual risk factors are considered systematically and specifically. This session will give IT professionals tools and knowledge to help them make informed decisions.
I intend to record a variation of this presentation at some point, but I wanted to make this available in the meantime.
