October 17, 2013 Event

Please save the date for our next CSA NYM Chapter Meeting on Thursday, October 17. The Chapter will be discussing PRISM and its implications on cloud providers and customers.

The ongoing disclosure of the extent of PRISM and other government programs, both domestically and abroad, has raised major privacy and confidentiality concerns for customers of cloud-based services. A recent CSA survey of 500 respondents found that 56% of non-US residents were less likely to use US-based cloud providers, in light of recent revelations about government access to customer information.

Companies have fiduciary obligations and other requirements to keep corporate data not only secure, but also private and confidential. In light of ongoing revelations, should companies be concerned about going to the cloud? What can businesses do to preserve the confidentiality and privacy of their data? Do the revelations raise the risk that new data residency requirements will restrict the use of cloud-based services?

The NY Metro Chapter of the CSA will be hosting an event to address these and other questions.
