Katz, Sapper & Miller, LLP, and KSM Consulting, LLC, have partnered with TechPoint to present the KSM Executive Roundtable series throughout 2011, focusing on major issues technology CEOs are facing. This series offers information that cannot be easily found elsewhere, in a format with a free exchange of ideas with other qualified CEOs.
Our next event is Tuesday, March 1, 2011, and the topic will be Cloud Computing Security: Overcoming Objections and Eliminating Risks.
Security isn't just an important cloud computing issue - it is THE issue. As the market matures and more companies transition from traditional licensed software to the cloud (in whole or in part), security is paramount for businesses in regulated industries, defense contractors, and those just seeking to protect their data from loss or outside threats.
How, then, should software-as-a-service (SaaS) product and service providers and their suppliers go about eliminating security risks? How should sales professionals overcome objections without overpromising beyond current technological certainties? These questions and more will be part of the discussion led by our panelists, Pat O'Day, chief technology officer of BlueLock; Tim Horoho, vice president of infrastructure at ExactTarget, and Drew Emsweller, manager of Cloud Technology at LightBound.
