This webinar addresses four critical concerns you should have as a business and technology decision maker:

* The Cloud, as with all technology aggregators, is a buffet of software, platforms and infrastructures. Your business systems depend on making the right choices. We’ll discuss the issues you’ll face.
* The Cloud has friction free tools and techniques that allow anyone in your organization to get started. Do you know where your critical data is right now? What are the security issues when your colleagues use Gmail, Dropbox, Google or Basecamp?
* There is no one size fits all when it comes to Cloud compliance and standards. PII, PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA and HITECH are all standards and regulations that need to be addressed depending on your industry. We’ll briefly look at each one and how they can help you to make your Cloud decision.
* Got a Facebook page? A Gmail account? Use Google to search? Use Amazon to purchase? If so, the Cloud has read, aggregated and data mined your personal information and your company’s. We’ll talk about some basic things you can do to understand your privacy in the Cloud.
