Identity theft in the cloud and possible remedies

As per my previous post, I was guest at SMAU 2012 an the italian computer exhibition that was held in Milan Oct 19th.

Basically we all know that Cloud can provide great flexibility to IT, ensuring business continuity and optimizing costs. But what are the implications for IT security? Even big names such as IEEE, Apple and Samsung are among the victims of identity theft in the Cloud. If you choose to adopt virtual data center (IaaS) or on-line applications (SaaS), you shift the paradigm of security as it was conceived up to now. Through the presentation I examined the security implications of a Cloud infrastructure and possible remedies with practical examples.

By “popular demand”, I translated the slides into english. Hope you will enjoy!
