Nov. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- UHY Advisors (http://www.uhyadvisors-us.com/uhy/)’ Principal David Barton recently spoke on the topic of Compliance Convergence for Cloud Providers at the 3rd annual Cloud Security Alliance Congress (http://www.misti.com/cloud) held November 7-8, 2012 in Orlando.  Barton shared current cloud compliance standards and talked about how best to educate customers.

His presentation offered expertise on:
·       Trends toward convergence and normalizing controls
·       Reducing costs associated with compliance efforts
·       Finding additional value by answering questions before they get asked

Frank Fenello, UHY Advisors Managing Director for the Southeast, said, “With cloud security changing every day, it’s imperative that businesses continually educate themselves with the latest threats and leading practices. Barton’s session shares how to stay ahead of regulations and trends related to the cloud, mitigate risk, and leverage the cloud in ways that will most benefit companies.”

The Cloud Security Alliance Congress 2012 (http://www.misti.com/cloud) is presented by Cloud Security Alliance (https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/) and organized by MIS Training Institute (http://www.misti.com).
