NOTE: Due to the sensitive nature of the information disclosed in some of the summit sessions, this is an "off the record" event. All information discussed must be held in confidence, and all attendees will agree to refrain from making public comments about the proceedings, with the only exception being the official summit proceedings produced by the Cloud Security Alliance.

Enterprises today are developing and executing cloud adoption strategies that vary widely. The plethora of innovative solutions spanning private, public, community and hybrid clouds provide enormous consumer choice. With that choice comes confusion and challenges in implementing consistent security strategies and controls that protect the enterprise today and support an evolving choice of cloud platforms. It is likely that enterprises will need to secure multiple clouds with diverging futures.

To that end, the Cloud Security Alliance and Zynga are co-hosting a one day summit to explore the shared responsibilities and opportunities to secure these diverging clouds. This event is by invitation only, and is intended to provide an open dialogue between cloud providers, enterprise cloud consumers and other key stakeholders to discuss the security issues tied to the diversity of clouds. The summit will include:

  • Presentations by cloud providers of their offerings and future vision
  • Presentations by enterprises of their cloud adoption roadmaps and key security concerns
  • Presentation of Cloud Security Alliance research roadmap
  • Open discussion of the challenges and opportunities
  • Resolution of next steps

This event will be an all day event and is by invitation only. The venue is the Westin Market Street in San Francisco. If you are interested in attending please contact us at [email protected].
