Many CISOs have lost the ability to choose whether cloud computing is coming to the company. Chief Financial Officers are demanding the cost savings of the cloud, especially during this tentative economic recovery where every penny must be stretched to its maximum capacity. In an attempt to be responsive and bridge the CISO – CFO divide, Amy Mushahwar presented a program series entitled,“Virtualization and Cloud Computing Security: Can the CISO Continue to Push Back?” Her bottom line: if organizations must proceed with cloud computing solutions, they should do so fully informed of the risks and armed with information to minimize potential harm to the enterprise environment.

Reed Smith recently hosted a series of meetings on this topic in its Washington, D.C., New York, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia offices with the CISO Executive Network. Please click here for a recorded video conference of Amy presenting to the Washington, D.C. CISO Executive Network.
