The purpose of this presentation is to investigate issues with security and using the Cloud. Currently, rather than trust the network to handle security end-to-end, there are several options that an individual can use to protect hisher personal data. Unfortunately, the new paradigm of Cloud Computing will make some of these methods impractical. In the Cloud, we need to examine what is the best method of security and encryption that makes sense, given that data and application may not be stored locally. Is there a single solution Will multiple solutions need to be considered. Are current synchronous and asynchronous algorithmic methods feasible In addition, the advent of Cloud Computing and Quantum Computing might make todays strong encryption methods unsafe. Current methods that guarantee protect your data for 25 years in the future are harder to find given the potential technological changes over the next 25 years. We will discuss approaches that make sense now, and examine ways that individual users and enterprise users can help ensure that their data can be secured for the future.
