Taking a look at security and privacy in the cloud. We’ll examine the new risks, and what tools can mitigate them. We’ll discuss governance, compliance, and what systems we need to use to access cloud resources securely. We’ll deal with identity, single-sign-on, and so on. The goal is to determine whether security can be accomplished in the cloud.
