Cloud Security Alliance Partners with IEEE

The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) announced a partnership with IEEE to ensure that best practices and standards are developed and available to provide security assurance for cloud computing. The first step is a survey to identify and define the most critical security concerns surrounding enterprise cloud computing.

Results will be announced at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit, a half-day event being held at the RSA conference in San Francisco on March 1, 2010.

"The true promise of cloud computing will only be realized if all aspects of security are addressed and communicated in a truly open and collaborative manner," said Judy Gorman, Managing Director, IEEE-SA. "Both CSA and the IEEE bring a unique and informed perspective to the table and this survey will help set the agenda for developing a comprehensive set of cloud security standards."
