techUK’s Building Trust in the Security of Cloud Launch Event

Come and join us on the Monday 24 April for the launch of techUK’s Building Trust in the Security of Cloud papers and take part in a discussion with leading cloud computing industry figures on building trust in the security of cloud computing.

On Monday 24 April from 10:00 - 13:00, techUK is launching a series of papers aimed at addressing common trust and security concerns, as well as misconceptions, surrounding cloud services. Despite many years of raising awareness of the benefits offered by cloud computing some negative perceptions remain about the security of cloud services that are holding back cloud adoption and its benefits. Given the importance of cloud computing to the UK’s digital future it is vital that the cloud security messages and advice being delivered today are relevant to how cloud services have evolved, address the concerns being raised by cloud users and are communicated to and understood by the right audiences.

To ensure this happens techUK has been working with cloud computing and cyber security industry experts to develop a series of papers aimed at providing information and advice for consumers, SMEs and local government leaders that are looking to get the most out of cloud computing. The following papers will be launched and discussed at the event:

  • Building Consumer Trust in the Security of Cloud
  • Building Local Government Trust in the Security of Cloud
  • How Can Cloud Secure and Streamline Your Business

Also being launched will be techUK’s “Cloud First. Policy Not Aspiration paper which focuses on the importance of the UK Government’s Cloud First policy being more than just an aspiration for ensuring effective public sector adoption and usage of cloud and how Government can become a loud and vocal cloud champion. The paper makes a number of recommendations that must be taken forward in order to build great trust in the security of cloud services and increase the adoption of cloud within the public sector. These recommendations and the importance of clear roles and responsibilities organisations for building greater trust and security in cloud computing across both the public and private sector and how to take forward techUK’s work on this area, will be the main focus of the discussion by key cloud computing and cyber security speakers at the launch event.

Speakers include:

  • Nathan Johnston, Head of Sales, Memset Limited
  • Ross Woodham, Director of Legal Affairs and Privacy Officer, Cogeco Peer 1
  • Tony Richards, CTO/CISO/Cyber and Cloud Security Strategist, ‎Securestorm

More speakers are currently being confirmed and will be annouced shortly.
