Solving for Cloud Security
11:45 AM
A panel moderated by Rackspace CSO Brian Kelly is definitely not one to miss—he will lead the discussion on one of the main reasons why businesses are slow to move to the cloud: concerns about security.

The C-Level panelists, who constantly think about IT security like their job depends on it (because it probably does), will discuss their experiences moving their own businesses or helping other businesses to the cloud and how they have overcome and conquered security doubts.
