Cloud computing continues to be an irresistible trend for organizations looking to cut IT costs but security teams remain concerned. The Cloud Security Alliance has been working to address the security issues with a number of initiatives. In this video interview, conducted at RSA Conference 2012, CSA Executive Director Jim Reavis talks about a wide range of cloud security trends, including cloud transparency and the state of cloud security.
Reavis talks about the CSA’s STAR program, which aims to provide transparency into cloud provider security controls, and new initiatives such as the CSA’s innovation initiative, which plans to help incubate new technologies that address cloud security gaps. He also talks about the role of security teams as cloud computing deployments grow.
