Security

Cloud computing is just another form of outsourcing, and like outsourcing, it comes with its own set of risks and compliance challenges. As the data center begins to disappear into the cloud, data security tops the list.

In this Compliance Advisor podcast, security expert Steven Ross discusses the compliance issues of the “disappearing data center” with SearchCompliance.com Executive Editor Scot Petersen.
