More and more data is being handled on devices not provided by the business.
More and more data is being handled within, or transferring through, cloud services outside of the business.
The ownership of this information is becoming more and more complex.

This CMA workshop is to explore the impact of third party cloud services and employees devices on the operation of a business. The following questions will be addressed:

  • What are the threats?
  • What are the methods for protecting business critical information?
  • What are the non-technology issues of a Bring Your Own Device environment?
  • What is the legal situation for employees using these services and options?

Speakers include:

Simon Jones, Head of Innovation, Vodafone Group, who will be discussing the major themes and behaviours emerging over the current 12 months, including the drive (or not) for employee-owned devices, the challenges these behaviours bring, as well as other strong themes such as the willingness (indeed demand) by employees to share services and content across multiple devices using cloud-services for ease of sharing.

Mike Gibson, Research in Motion, discussing the future architectures for the delivery of mobile content, including a first look at Blackberry 10 which will have been released the day before the workshop.

Quing Tsang,  Dimension Data, sharing the practical experience of deploying cloud services into the enterprise.

Peter Wenham, Trusted Management, discussing the methods and techniques required to protect critical business information when deployed into cloud-services.
