Cloud Standards: Driving the future while avoiding yesterday's mistakes
With cloud computing becoming one of the hottest technologies transforming the practice of physical security, standards are central to ensure that the costly proprietary mistakes of yesterday aren't repeated in this new, open era. At the same time that the shift to cloud has enabled new business models for security companies, it is exposing both providers and integrators to more new IT issues than even the IP-migration of the past decade. In this panel, we examine several key areas of cloud standard relevant to physical security practitioners: identity in the cloud, cloud security, and cloud integration.
