MIT Security Expert Shares Cloud & Virtualization Solutions

Here is a Free, Interactive Webinar about Cloud & Virtualization:

From Desktops to Devices: Securely Navigating Through the Cloud

Digital security expert and MIT research fellow Michael Schrage shares solutions to increase security leveraging virtualization and the cloud

Thursday, September 29, 2011
12:00 - 1:00 PM U.S./Canadian Eastern

The tension between information security and productivity has never been greater. To operate at peak performance and competitiveness, organizations need workers to be able to access resources in more places and ways than ever before. Traditional security strategies are being pushed to their breaking point by today's proliferation of work locations, types of workers, devices, and access methods.

Desktop virtualization provides organizations a better approach to information security mitigating their risks while still allowing personnel and resources to be deployed whenever and wherever they're needed.

MIT research fellow Michael Schrage, who consults for the U.S. government on national security, will discuss the critical design and implementation issues associated with aligning security and virtualization. You'll learn how to:

• Securely integrate innovative new devices into established networks

• Facilitate secure collaboration among employees, contractors,
and partners

• Cost-effectively exploit the economics of evolving clouds-public, private, and hybrid

Michael Schrage is a research fellow at the Sloan School of Management's Center for Digital Business, senior advisor to MIT's Security Studies Program, and a consultant to the U.S. government. His books, Serious Play: How the World's Best Companies Simulate to Innovate and Shared Minds—The New Technologies of Collaboration, have helped countless companies understand how to leverage today's technologies in a secure and efficient manner.

To learn about a better approach to information security, join Michael Schrage and HBR on September 29.
