Un-Clouding FISMA Security Compliance

VP of Security & Risk Solutions for Integralis, Eric Greenberg, will speak at Government IT Expo

SYS-CON Events announced today that Eric Greenberg, VP of Security & Risk Solutions for Integralis, will be presenting at the upcoming Government IT Conference & Expo (www.GovITExpo.com) this coming October 6th in Washington, DC.

The session will be entitled "Un-Clouding FISMA Security Compliance"

Un-Clouding FISMA Security Compliance
Cloud computing is all the rage, yet there are significant challenges to embracing the cloud with the goal of security and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliance. Among these barriers are defining system audit boundaries, who is responsible for audits, and how federal agencies can achieve security in a shared cloud computing environment. This session will clear up FISMA security compliance misconceptions and obstacles to cloud computing and will offer participants strategies for synching their FISMA compliance framework to the cloud.
