Wading Through the Cloud Security Swamp

Riverbed's Steve Riley Set to Present His Popular Session at Cloud Expo

When you're up to your (neck) in alligators, you forget that you were hired to drain the swamp.

This insight is germane to Steve Riley and his talk, "Wading Through the Cloud Security Swamp," to be presented at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. Steve's presentation is scheduled at 9:55am on Tuesday, June 7.

"How should a company evaluate its own risk profile?," he asks. "What questions do you need to ask your Cloud services provider? How about the whole idea of transferring risk and indemnity?"

He promises to "survey the swamp, clarify what's real and what's hype, and help provide some kind of realistic basis for making risk judgments and deployment decisions." His session at Cloud Expo in Santa Clara last November was one of the most popular on the program.

Steve Riley is Technical Leader in the Office of the CTO at Riverbed Technology. His role "is to research cutting-edge developments that help customers maximize their infrastructure investments. This includes working with customers to develop and improve technical architectures, incorporating feedback into the product planning and development processes."
