Doubts about security have shadowed the cloud since the cloud model's inception, as IT executives looked at the prospect of giving up some control over their computing and storage infrastructures. Whether those security concerns should be greater or less than those for on-premises IT and datacenters, IT's role in a cloud initiative certainly is different from that of traditional, internal IT. Yet, the key question remains constant: How can we best protect our company data and systems?

IT security consultant and author Ira Winkler joins The Enterprise Cloud Site Radio Show on Thursday, June 26, at 2:00 p.m. EDT to discuss what IT executives can do to best protect a company's information resources during a move to a cloud-based infrastructure.

Winkler is president of the Internet Security Advisors Group and is considered one of the world's most influential security professionals. He has been named a "Modern Day James Bond" by the media. He is the author of the books Spies Among Us and Zen and the Art of Information Security and has recently been elected Vice President of the Information Systems Security Association. Winkler began his career at the National Security Agency, and went on to serve as President of the Internet Security Advisors Group, Chief Security Strategist, at HP Consulting, and Director of Technology of the National Computer Security Association.
