Infrastructure as a Service security 101: Public IaaS security issues
Public cloud encryption: Encrypted cloud storage options for enterprises
Before entering into a cloud computing engagement, it’s important to understand not only how the three cloud computing service models work, but also what security tradeoffs your organization will be making based on the service model it chooses.
This presentation will help you architecturally understand each of the service models -- Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) -- and the security risks you can expect with each, as well as how IaaS, PaaS and SaaS security issues and risks affect not only data security but also organizational compliance efforts.
