European Cloud Privacy and Regulations

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 3:00 PM CET/ 2:00 PM UK/ 9:00 AM EDT

Gains in business agility and efficiency are a strong attraction for embracing cloud technologies. European privacy and regulations can, however, seem to inhibit many of these potential gains. The good news is that it really is possible to be both cloud-agile and European-compliant. What is required is an intelligent use of hybrid cloud, enabled by flexible, yet, effective controls over data and access. Critical to this thinking is an approach to security that is based on “Know” rather than just saying “No”. Clarity of who is accessing data and where they are accessing it from, will answer almost all compliance challenges.

In this webinar Charles Weaver and Luke Forsyth will discuss how many of CA Technologies’ customers are addressing these issues of being secure, compliant and agile, all at the same time.

Who should attend:
  • MSPs
  • Value Added Resellers
  • Chief Security Officers
  • Chief Information Security Officers
  • Telecommunication providers
  • Telephony providers
  • Data centers
  • Cloud providers
  • System Integrators
