** Speaker Talking Points to be added soon.. **

Douglas W. Barbin, CPA, CISSP, PCI QSA, Principal,

  • 1. Scope - #1 issue for cloud PCI assessment – What are the boundaries of the system or cloud service provided? What are the boundaries of the audit? Are they the same? How are in-scope versus out-of-scope systems segmented?
  • 2. Shared control responsibility – Where does the cloud provider’s responsibility end and the customers’ begin? This can be complex and the answer may vary by control requirement.
  • 3. Configuration management – The Achilles heal for cloud providers. How are configurations being consistently and security applied across hundreds if not thousands of managed systems? How does the configuration scale with the “elasticity” associated with cloud computing?
  • 4. Continuous monitoring – How is the cloud provider collecting and maintaining the appropriate historical security and event log data?

Robert E. Braun, Partner,
Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP

  • • Key Contract Provisions - What are the key provisions which should be contained in any Cloud Computing agreement?
  • • Security Breach Issues - What do I need to do to protect against a security breach, and what are the responsibilities of the Cloud Provider?
  • • International Relations - Cloud Computing is an international endeavor - how to foreign jurisdictions impact my obligations?
  • • Mobile Devices and Applications - How do mobile devices and applications change the playing field?
