No Rainy Days: Identity Protection in the Cloud

#sxsw #CloudID

Cloud computing has made the move from new concept to technology that your mother uses. We now are entrusting so many different types of data to the cloud from financial statements and credit card numbers to our music collection and private emails. Yet how secure is the cloud and how much control do we have over the data that we entrust to it? If that data is stolen, will we know and what can we do? Who has jurisdictional authority over the data we store and under what circumstances can it be given away? This panel will try to answer these questions and more as we explore the impact of the cloud and what it means for personal identity and security.
