PaaSword is organizing the 2nd International Workshop on Cloud Security and Data Privacy by Design (CloudSPD’16). The workshop takes place in Luxembourg on 12th of December 2016 co-located with the IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Cloud Computing Technology and Science (CloudCom).
Enterprises increasingly recognize the compelling economic and operational benefits of Cloud Computing. Virtualizing and pooling IT resources in the cloud enables organizations to realize significant cost savings and accelerates deployment of new applications, simultaneously transforming business and government at an unprecedented pace. However, those valuable business benefits cannot be unlocked without addressing new data security challenges posed by Cloud Computing.
Deploying confidential information and critical IT resources in the Cloud raises concerns about vulnerability to attack, especially because of the anonymous, multi-tenant nature of cloud computing. Applications and storage volumes often reside next to potentially hostile virtual environments, leaving information at risk to theft, unauthorized exposure or malicious manipulation. Governmental regulation of data privacy and location presents the additional concern of significant legal and financial consequences if data confidentiality is breached, or if Cloud providers inadvertently move regulated data across international borders.
This workshop aims to provide a fertile ground for creative debate and presentation of research results, practical experiences, and innovative ideas in all security aspects related to cloud computing. CloudSPD’16 focuses on Cloud Computing security, and invites research efforts from both the academia and industry in order to facilitate the dissemination of research and development of the next generation cloud platforms, applications and methods that will lead to better and more secure by design cloud-based systems.
The workshop is awaiting you with ten promising presentations and discussions. Have a look at the detailed workshop programm.
