Bring Your Own Cloud: Data Management Challenges in a Click-Through World

Wednesday, April 17 | 12:15PM–1:00PM | Salon E/F
Session Type: Professional Development

Consumer cloud-based services are easy to set up, low cost, and familiar. It's understandable why clients would automatically turn to them for their data-storage needs. But what happens when data security challenges expediency? We will explore a complex case study to examine a university group that turned to free cloud services to share sensitive data. Our discussion will focus on challenges conducting distributed research with limited resources and computing personnel. Solutions to the case will be considered, including working across organizational borders to advocate for customers, building client awareness, and conducting routine security assessments.
