On June 20th, our speaker will be Sandy Buchanan, presenting the topic: "Guardrails and templates: How cloud makes compliance easy"

Ready or not, cloud is here, and people in your organization are actively exploring either full or partial adoption of its many benefits. In many companies, there is a fear that adopting cloud computing will result in a loss of control, let alone concerns of navigating the technical/compliance requirements of a new environment.

Today’s cloud providers offer a vast complement of services and technologies to help businesses address their compliance needs and reduce associated costs. From granular security controls to measuring policy effectiveness and continuous auditing, the cloud affords businesses clear advantages in setting up and maintaining environments that meet their compliance requirements.

This talk will present a proven approach for maintaining compliance when transitioning to the cloud and explore some of the associated technical challenges.
