Keeping Safe In The Cloud

September 09, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

“With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that computer users must agree to... the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it...”

DMTF's Cloud Infrastructure Standard

September 07, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

August 30, 2012 Added by:Bozidar Spirovski

Assuming you have selected a service to migrate to a cloud provider, and have selected the cloud provider, even after contract signing, things may still be far from complete.

On Cloud Outages (Yeah, They Happen)

August 29, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

Cloud vendors are quick to point out how reliable their data centers are with redundant channels, power supply structures and the like. Any application running on the cloud needs to consider the same issues – it is unrealistic to rely on one single data center – a chain is only as strong as its weakest link...

Throwing Stones in Glass Houses: Views on the Security Industry

August 26, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

The Cloud: It’s About Flexibility

August 21, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

As far as I’m concerned, the future will see a gradual shift from on-premise, to private cloud, to public cloud – that’s a factor of economics and scale. But the bottom line is that cloud isn’t about meeting a series of technical check boxes; it’s about meeting the needs of the business...

The Future Ain’t Homogenized: Please Stop the FUD Vendors

August 15, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

At the end of the day, if is slightly cheaper to own your hardware than to rent, the fact is that if in doing so you have to spend time focusing on technology instead of focusing on your core business, then that savings pales into insignificance when compared to the real value that pure focus can bring...

Dropbox Security Issues: IT Has Only Itself to Blame

August 06, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

For Dropbox to admit that they were investigating the issue internally is a tacit admission that it is an internal issue rather than anything external. Yes Dropbox has issues, and yes those issues would appear to be indicative of something broader – but that doesn’t call into question the entire concept of cloud...

Security Mistakes You Will Make on Your Next Cloud Project

July 18, 2012 Added by:Danny Lieberman

The Cloud Security Control model looks great, but it doesn’t mitigate core vulnerabilities in your software. Once you choose the right service model and vendor, put aside the security reference models and focus on hardening your application software. It’s your code that will be running in someone else's cloud...

Ten Things I’ve Learned About Cloud Security

July 17, 2012 Added by:Bill Mathews

Cloud security is tough for a lot of reasons, not least of which is because you probably only understand the basics of what you interface with - the controls the provider allows you to see.

The Patchwork Cloud: Breaking Laws You Didn't Know Applied

July 11, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

The challenges of dealing with a completely connected, ubiquitously computable world are that data can be moved, stored, and used anywhere and that the infrastructure that moves that data around is less and less under your control.

Security Vendors: Absit Reverentia Vero

July 09, 2012 Added by:

Vendors are driven to sell and sell at all costs. Product features stagnate, services under perform. We the customers suffer and the security postures of all organizations plummets. Adversaries can spend less on penetration innovation while at the same time more easily bypass our defenses...
