Securing the Cloud is the first book that helps you secure your information while taking part in the time and cost savings of cloud computing. As companies turn to burgeoning cloud computing technology to streamline and save money, security is a fundamental concern. The cloud offers flexibility, adaptability, scalability, and in the case of security - resilience. Securing the Cloud explains how to make the move to the cloud, detailing the strengths and weaknesses of securing a company's information with different cloud approaches. It offers a clear and concise framework to secure a business' assets while making the most of this new technology.

This book considers alternate approaches for securing a piece of the cloud, such as private vs. public clouds, SaaS vs. IaaS, and loss of control and lack of trust. It discusses the cloud's impact on security roles, highlighting security as a service, data backup, and disaster recovery. It also describes the benefits of moving to the cloud - solving for limited availability of space, power, and storage.

This book will appeal to network and security IT staff and management responsible for design, implementation and management of IT structures from admins to CSOs, CTOs, CIOs and CISOs.
