About the Theme: The demand for cloud services, which has been exponentially increasing in recent years, is projected to reach 1.3 billion in 2017. While constantly on the move, we want the convenience of having our personal library of files and applications available to us. At the same time, companies increasingly report data security lapses with the cloud service. 

What organizational challenges does distributed storage present for business operations? What are best practices for individuals using a personal cloud? How can you avoid accidental leakage of sensitive data? With instant file retrieval from anywhere, on demand, how is distributed storage changing our psychology? Join us as we consider flash storage and the cloud – and what you can do to protect yourself from the inevitable risk of this continuously evolving media.
