Summary : The "Cloud" is an emerging utility and delivery model for many IT-based services, in which the user sees only the service, and has no insight about the technology or implementation of the Cloud infrastructure. The Cloud can deliver and host many services such as SaaS, IaaS and PaaS. With any new implementation of technology or architecture comes risk. In the following presentation I will discuss the technical, and business risk associated with Cloud. Additionally, I will be discussing virtualization and more importantly the threat landscape that drives the security needed to secure the Cloud.
