A Cloud Security Ghost Story at Black Hat Europe

BlackHat-20090406-193159 A Cloud Security Ghost Story at Black Hat EuropeI’m in the middle of preparing for Black Hat Europe where I’ll be speaking about Cloud Security.  Here’s the blurb:

This presentation rips apart the hype and “newfangledness” of Cloud Services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS etc) to expose the ghost in the machine. Just as the human brain has grown, built upon earlier, more primitive brain structures, so it is with the Cloud. With the advent of commercially available, pay-as-you-go public Cloud services, CFOs are casting a weary eye to the CIO in anticipation of joining the great infrastructure linedance in the sky. Meanwhile, vendors are jockeying for position to “enable” the Enterprise Cloud and Cloud brokers are trading excess compute capacity in data centers. What does all this mean from a security point of view? What are the security risks (and benefits)? Are you ready to face the ghosts in the Clouds?

I’m really looking forward to this.  If you’re going to be there, let me know!
