New initiatives such as cloud computing are imposing significant security risks on the corporation, network, IT and the day to day activities of the business. How do businesses maintain compliance, control and ownership of sensitive data as they move from the physical environment to a cloud world? The distribution of data onto devices may not be completely controlled by the data owner, and there is liability confusion as cloud service providers take on a larger role. As a result CIOs are looking at technologies and strategies to assure security while delivering the required services.
