London: As the adoption of cloud computing continues to grow across the world, security, privacy and regulation of data in the cloud are becoming more prominent and relevant than ever before. This year’s Cloud World Forum conference and exhibition will provide a platform for leading solution providers and delegates across multiple industries to examine the risks, and explore the solutions to these growing concerns. In a recent report by cloud security specialists Sky High Networks[1], nine out of ten cloud services put European businesses at risk. The report analysed one million users across 40 companies and found that enterprises use an average of 588 cloud services of which only 9% of those services in use provide enterprise-grade security. This brings to the fore concerns surrounding the regulation of privacy in the cloud.

Cloud World Forum will address this by focusing on the risks cloud computing brings to security and privacy of enterprises, their employees and consumers, throughout the conference. On Day One of the event during the transforming the cloud keynote, a track titled, “Data Regulation and Privacy” will cover the morning and early afternoon session. Daniel Austin, Principal Architect, Paypal, will kick things off with a presentation titled, “Firestarer: Are Cloud and Big Data Big Brother? Managing Threats to Privacy in the Digital Age.”

Udo Helmbrecht, Executive Director, European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA), who will provide a case study about leveraging the security opportunities around cloud computing, said: “At ENISA we focus on security as a driver for cloud; cloud security has been a hot topic for several years – and even more so in the last few months. Big cloud computing service providers are gaining more and more grounds on the international market, leaving no space for SMEs. At ENISA we work on the risks of Cloud Computing, we improve SLAs introducing certification so that in the end all users of cloud services can be sure that it’s secure cloud. At Cloud World Forum I intend to look at the cyber security problems for governmental bodies, providers and SMEs, the dilemma of legal compliance vs operational security and ENISA’s contribution in the EU’s cloud strategy.”

On Day Two, Torseten Rueter, Strategy and Planning Leader, GE Capital, will pose the question, “How do you deliver change ten times faster and yet safely and securely?”, drawing on experience from GE’s strategy for building a modern, agile IT platform for the future.

Georgios Kipouros, Head of Production, Cloud World Series, said: “Cloud security concerns should not deter enterprises or organizations from using cloud services when it makes business sense. This year’s event will address the challenges of cloud security and privacy, while highlighting how organisations can overcome these when outsourcing data applications and infrastructures in the cloud.”

This year’s event will once again see the leading Cloud vendors gather to exhibit their latest solutions on the show floor, including: Dell, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and Google. The Forum also features an exclusive C-level keynote Future Cloud theatre with CIOs and CTOs from leading end-users, such as: Coca Cola, UEFA, BBC, BMW, Marks & Spencer, UBS, CERN and Lufthansa.

The Cloud World Forum will take place on 17-18 June 2014, at the Olympia National Hall, London, UK. As EMEA’s largest and most comprehensive Cloud event it boasts an impressive agenda, with more than 240 speakers participating from 74 countries.
