2013 Cloud Security Symposium & National Conversation

On February 19, 2013, the GCSC,in conjunction with the Homeland Security & Defense Business Council and the Civitas Group, hosted a symposium on THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT & CLOUD COMPUTING, Addressing the Challenges and Resolving the Tensions Between Security and Efficiency in the Evolving Enterprise. This half-day symposium provided a forum in which subject matter experts from industry and government could engage in a dialogue that brought their diverse perspectives to the discussion around the security of cloud computing in the federal government. The event included panel discussions on mythbusting and misconceptions, current cloud security practices and future use, and a capstone discussion on the unresolved security issues affecting implementation.

The result of the symposium was an after-action summary report, which you can download from here.
