Systems Engineering and Cloud Computing
Cloud is everywhere, and it has people both excited, and nervous. It has the opportunity to provide benefits that are already too early to realise, both to consumers, and to businesses. The attraction of reduced hardware cost and software ownership is unquestionably a major attraction to both SME’s all the way through to large corporate enterprises, allowing them to focus on what they do best.

Be that as it may, cloud computing is an unstoppable force, and as security practitioners, it is our responsibility to enable the business to take educated risks to take advantage of what this exciting evolution can offer.
