Cloud Computing Privacy and Security Focus At CA World

Acxiom : 19 May, 2010  (Company News)
A Computer Associates partner, Acxiom is attending CA World 2010 with education and information on cloud security during a forum on privacy and security considerations when operating a cloud computing environment
IT executives who are seeking answers to security questions about Cloud Computing will have the opportunity to learn all the details about cloud security from experts at Acxiom and CA Technologies during CA World 2010, a global gathering of CA Technologies' customers, partners, executives and IT leaders.

Cloud computing allows companies to deploy services on demand without the capital investment required by more traditional alternatives. However, that often means that personal and business-confidential data is communicated, stored and processed on external systems owned by other companies having their own security Risk Management policies and controls.

"Data privacy and security risks have always represented increasingly serious business management issues," said Chuck Howland, Acxiom vice president for information technology. "But these risks become more complex in the move to cloud computing."

Howland and Tim Brown, CA Technologies chief security architect and distinguished engineer, will deliver an insightful presentation on "Cloud Computing: Privacy and Security Issues." In this presentation they will explain how confidentiality, data integrity and availability - the core components of information security - must now be managed with great care by multiple organizations, even as the primary company still bears primary visibility and responsibility for ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive information.

"Cloud computing imposes novel requirements for assessing and managing risk, as well as enhanced governance and more finely calibrated security management policies and practices," Howland said. "At the very least, most businesses are dealing with growing data storage challenges. We want to help business leaders understand the most economic way to move into cloud computing, while finding the right combination of security and privacy controls."

In a session entitled "Breaking the Barriers to Cloud Computing Adoption: Service Provider Perspectives," John Costanza, Acxiom vice president for product management, will explain how leading service providers such as Acxiom see Cloud Computing adapting to the business needs of their clients and how technology is maturing to address the technical challenges.

Other sessions include:

• "Next Generation Information Governance in the Cloud," led by Todd Barron, Acxiom product manager.
• "Building More Effective and Agile Organizations," led by David Guzman, Acxiom CIO.
• "Security Implications of Going Virtual - What Can You Do," led by Ryan LaMirand, Acxiom Senior Manager, Product Management.
• "Achieving High Availability, High-Volume Web Services," led by Luke Lofgren, Acxiom system engineer and architect.

Acxiom is a CA Technologies Strategic Alliance Partner and a past winner of the CA Award for IT Excellence. At CA World, attendees can see a prototype demonstration of how technology from Acxiom and CA Technologies works together to deliver a cloud-based service for identity verification.

Acxiom delivers secure, high performance IT infrastructure services and cloud-enabled transformation solutions that enable growth and profitability. Mission-critical systems are delivered through Acxiom's agile, highly secure and cost-effective services ranging from fully managed mainframe and server, to secure network access, multi-tiered storage, and various SaaS security solutions.
