Applications are invited for technology contest for the prevention, defence and recovery of criminal activity in cloud computing applications with the winner to receive $10,000 cash, use of the HP Labs cloud test-bed and CapGemini mentoring
The inaugural Cloud Security Challenge, sponsored by HP Labs, is open for entries until March 15. The competition aims to uncover innovative new solutions to help protect governments and enterprises as they adopt Cloud Computing solutions.

Governments and industry around the world are attracted to the benefits of the cloud, but are hesitant because of possible security and privacy risks. Can your technology solve the issues surrounding the cloud?

The winner of the Cloud Security Challenge will receive:

* $10,000 cash award.
* exclusive mentorship from an executive at CapGemini
* up to three finalists will be invited to test their technology in an HP Labs cloud test-bed.

Entry is free and the deadline is Monday 15 March 2010

Entrants must have a technology that can be used to prevent, defend against, cope with or recover from terrorist incidents and other criminal acts in the 'cloud'. The venture cannot have more than GBP£3 million in annual revenues in 2009 (total annual sales revenue).

This competition has its own independent judging committee and entering does not preclude you from applying to any other GSC competition later this year.

Examples of areas of interest are (but are not limited to): data protection, storage in the cloud, authentication, encrypted data transfer, data classification, understanding data locations, vulnerabilities from social networks and virtualization SW.

Applications are free and can be completed in one session (approx. 1-2 hours) or can be saved, altered and submitted at a later date.

The online application form consists of a series of questions on topics including: the benefits of your technology; your team; the market you wish to enter; and your future plans. For further information, please visit the Global Security Challenge website.
