Tantus Technologies Dan Philpott to Speak at Cloud Computing Solutions Seminar

On November 8th, Tantus Technologies, Inc. (Tantus) Program Manager Dan Philpott will be speaking at the Mythbusting Guide to Federal Data Centers and the CloudSolutions Seminar, to be hosted byFederal Computer Week and Juniper Networks.    Mr. Philpott will be addressing Cloud security, transitioning to Cloud Computing and Federal Information Security.

“It is an honor and a pleasure to speak on the subject and share insight into how to successfully achieve a smooth and secure transition to the Cloud,” Mr. Philpott said, “This is an exciting time for Federal IT managers as they learn how to transition legacy infrastructure and systems to the Cloud. Cloud computing itself is a varied set of solutions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. There are cyber security risks and FISMA compliance pitfalls we can help them avoid as they shift to this cost effective and powerful solution.”

Other seminar  topics include how the Cloud Security Alliance’s GRC Stack can help with Federal Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance in the Cloud, using the GRC Stack’s Cloud Controls Matrix mapping to NIST SP 800-53 Revision 3 to achieve FISMA compliance, and understanding how FedRAMP and FISMA authorizations work for Cloud computing systems.
