Auditing and Privacy in Clouds

By: Dr. Tyrone Grandison

When: March 25, 2015 at 4:00 - 5:00PM
Where:  Natural Sciences Fase II, Room  C-354

Abstract:  Over the last few years, cloud services have been steadily gaining traction in their use by commercial and non-commercial  entities. As more and more sensitive or valuable processes, business functions and data move into the cloud, the need to improve threat identification and response, via auditing cloud transactions,increases. At the same time, the need for cloud users to protect the security and privacy of their resources has also intensified. In this talk, we will cover how mechanisms can be used to ensure these constraints are met.
