CSA Innovation Conference 2012
In the spirit of the CSA Silicon Valley Chapter’s mission to foster education and transparency of emerging and innovative technologies supporting best in class solutions for Cloud Security, the inaugural Innovation Conference will gather IT architects, senior executives, start-ups, and industry leaders to discuss current challenges, best practices, breakthroughs and trends in cloud computing and security, and, most importantly, witnesses demonstrations of working prototypes (or more mature readiness levels) of new cloud-related security capabilities.
“Urgent need drives innovation, and cloud security is going to be a crucial area of both great demand and huge advancement over the next decade,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder and executive director of the CSA. “This will be the liveliest and most forward-thinking discussion on cloud security, and we look forward to bringing together innovators with end-users, investors, and thought leaders in the space at this unique event.”
The CSA Innovation Conference will have two tracks – one for applied research related to cloud computing security, and the second for demonstrating customer case studies of new, working cloud security-related software capabilities. The event will also include a ‘lightning round’ for which companies are encouraged to apply. All entries in this category will be judged on-the-spot by a panel of industry executives and venture capitalists, with a winner awarded immediately.
