We're delighted to invite you to our inaugural Cloud Summit where we aim to provide real world insight into the unchartered waters of cloud computing. With cloud still in its infancy, we've focussed on delivering an interactive event full of customer experiences from small, medium and large companies.

Our expert panel debate will focus on the major security concerns: data privacy and loss, identification and authentication, and regulation.

Who should attend? IT managers, IT Directors and CIOs anyone considering, planning or implementing a cloud-based project!
