London, UK: Commenting on new research showing that confidence in cloud data resources – and even the security of the data in the cloud – is increasing, the organisers of the Infosecurity Europe show say that it is important to realise that the cloud is actually a remote data centre, rather than a local one. Once this concept is grasped by IT security professionals, says David Rowe, CISSP, a member of the Infosecurity Europe Advisory Council and Head of Business Services for the show - held each April in London – it then becomes possible to extend an organisation’s information security and governance envelope around the cloud data resource.

“Whilst we welcome news that adoption of cloud services is on the increase, I think it is revealing that the research from our colleagues National Cloud and ANS Group shows that only 14% of IT directors and managers think their cloud provider offers a service agreement that meets the needs of their organisation. Developing an effective security strategy – and deploying that strategy – is a lot easier than achieving a service level agreement (SLA) that meets the needs of any organisation seeking the highest levels of data protection in the cloud,” he said. “The process of negotiating a truly effective SLA, requires a high degree of understanding about cloud data transport and allied resources, as well as the cloud IT resource itself, and that - in turn – mandates that the person doing the negotiating has had the necessary security education required,” he added.

The good news, says Rowe, is that, whilst gaining access to effective education on this subject is a not as easy as you might think, help is at hand in the shape of the free educational seminar programs planned for the Infosecurity Europe show, which takes place at London Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre between the 23rd and the 25th of April
