A few weeks back I had the opportunity to I speak at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2016 held in San Francisco, California. Microsoft was a Platinum sponsor of the event. I participated in a panel discussion on cloud security that focused on lessons learned from a cloud services provider’s point of view. Google, Dropbox, and Rackspace also participated on the panel.

The panel was moderated by Robert Herjavec, CEO of the Herjavec Group and star of ABC’s Shark Tank. Robert was a gracious and fun moderator to work with and I managed to survive the panel without a shark bite!

Also from Microsoft, Bruce Cowper delivered a keynote titled “Trusted Cloud” in which Bruce discussed the gap between how much people trust their on-premises infrastructure and the enterprise cloud services they consume, and examined reasons for the difference.
