Creating a Cloud Security Policy 

As security professionals in a dynamic, fast-growing enterprise, we faced significant challenges in enabling the business to move quickly while ensuring our corporate and member data is adequately protected.  In order to meet this requirement, LinkedIn needed to put a framework in place to enable our employees to make informed decisions about how and where to use them.  In this presentation we’ll share how we created a policy by combining industry best practices, resources from the Cloud Security Alliance, PCI-DSS, and other sources.  This non-technical presentation is aimed at IT & Security directors and policymakers.

As the lead Cloud Security & IAM resource for security at LinkedIn, Chris has spent the last 5 years enabling adoption of cloud technology as LinkedIn grew from 500 employees to over 5,000.   Previously, Chris worked as an Enterprise Content Management consultant for a Documentum partner, designing, developing, and delivering solutions for customers such as Nestle, Cisco, AMD, Telus, and the US Department of Defense. When he’s not writing security policy, he teaches Mountaineering, Search & Rescue, and outdoor survival for the Tahoe Backcountry Ski Patrol in Truckee, California.
