Title: "Can encryption help alleviate concerns about moving to the cloud?"
Encryption is still typically poorly implemented and as Bruce Schneier has said, "Key management is the hardest part of cryptography and often theAchilles' heel of an otherwise secure system." But we've solved the network encryption problem. We all use encryption every time we shop online. Why does encryption continue to be such a headache?
In this talk, we will explore the various encryption options available and explore how individuals, organizations and cloud services providers can implement encryption solutions to enable them to securely manage data in today's multi-tenant cloud environments.
