The cloud â€“ and now I mean the volcano cloud â€“ showed that there is not always a real need to travel far in to get the right information at an event of conference. I delivered a keynote via LiveMeeting (Virtual Keynotes â€“ Do we always have to travel?) during the time the planes were grounded.
Infosecurity-Magazine (where I am a member of the editorial board in the UK) runs an Infosecurity Virtual Conference â€“ and it seems that it is quite a success. They have one for the UK (which you can find here) and one for the use (here).
This is a really interesting approach. What is even more interesting â€“ I am part of the Cloud slot at the US conference:
- Creating a safer, more trusted cloud: A growing number of organizations are electing to link their existing server facilities with cloud-based storage systems, but are we, as an industry, ready for the cloud? What are the security issues that need to be addressed before going down this hybrid local server/cloud approach? Is it better to go for a private cloud option for extra security? What are the governance and regulatory issues of this approach?

If you are a CISSP or an SSCP, you can even get CPE credits for attending
Looking forward â€œseeingâ€ you there.
