At the InfoSec World 2011 conference, in the sessions I attended, there was quite a bit of discussion about moving to the cloud as well as cloud outages. What did I discover:
- Migration to the cloud requires planning and resources
- Migration to the cloud requires a team including legal
- Diversification is very important
- It must be easy to migrate
- Security as a Service is a valid option
- I should not lower my standards just to enter the cloud
Some of this was discussed at InfoSec World 2011, The Virtualization Security Podcast of 4/21, and while at Innovations at Epcot Center.
