Keeping up with technology advancement is critical for many of us because of its real world impact. This explains, for example, why many people signed up for the Cloud Security Alliance Summit at the 2010 RSA Conference in San Francisco last month. I witnessed that many people were turned away because demand for the session far exceeded what the conference room could accommodate.

The other side of the coin is how some of the long time customer challenges are being addressed. A recent study by TheInfoPro (Information Security Wave 12) shows that user awareness and compliance are still the top 2 information security pain points for customers – not cloud computing, virtualization or any other specific technologies although many of them have their own fair share of security concerns.

Interop 2010 at Las Vegas is just around the corner. Are you going?  I’m glad to see excellent conference topics that cover both popular technology areas and fundamental IT issues such as Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). I anticipate a lot of new progress to be reported at this event.

Cisco will be at this conference to share our latest Borderless Networks innovations in routing, switching, mobility, security, video and more.  In the security area, you’ll have opportunities to see first-hand demonstrations on Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility and Cisco TrustSec solutions and have white board discussions with our experts in the Chalk Talk session.

  1. Security and protection are major points of worry in all computer related businesses. Hope to see some innovative ideas this time.

  2. I will be there. We will definitely stop by your booth. See you there!

  3. Thanks, Steven. I believe user awareness and compliance will remain the top two even as organizations adopt enabling technologies like virtualization and cloud computing.
