Data Security and “The Cloud” – A Debate

From the 2014 PLUS Conference session “Cyber Speed Debates 2.0,” moderator Jake Kouns (Markel) and panelists Bill Hardin (Navigant) and Brian Branner (RiskAnalytics, LLC) debate the question:

“The feared systemic risk associated with the cloud is completely overblown. When organizations use cloud services it actually provides them much better security controls.”

PLUS members can view this entire debate and panel in the PLUS Multimedia Library under the PLUS Conference section.

Please note that the panelists featured in this clip may have been asked to debate a side of the issue other than what they actually believe.
