NIST to Hold Cloud Computing ForumFederal CIO Vivek Kundra Among Featured Presenters
Among the topics to be addressed at the forum are cloud computing's trustworthiness and standards.
Kundra, a strong advocate of cloud computing, has called upon NIST to help accelerate the federal government's adoption of secure cloud computing practices by leading efforts to develop standards and guidelines in collaboration with standards bodies, the private sector, other government agencies and other stakeholders.
According to NIST, working groups that were formed during its Cloud Computing Workshop and Forum in November will provide progress reports. These working groups cover a range of cloud computing issues.
