This workshop-based unconference is part of a project currently run by the
Department of Information Studies at Aberystwyth University and funded by
the Society of Archivists looking into security, operational and
governance issues of storing information in the cloud.

Cloud computing, that is the provision of IT services via the internet, is
a trending topic within the information communities. In recent years many
organisations already have or are actively planning to outsource some of
their IT services such as email, information storage, payroll etc. to
cloud computing providers such as Google and Amazon for cost and
efficiency reasons. Cloud computing can have financial and operational
advantages such as reduced deployment cost, increased storage capabilities
and scalability. However, cloud computing raises security and compliance
issues that need to be addressed when outsourcing information storage to
third parties. Our aim at this one-day workshop-based unconference is to
generate debate and to highlight some of the security and governance
issues surrounding the storage of information in a virtual environment.

The unconference is aimed at information professionals such as information
managers, records managers, archivists and librarians as well as at IT
professionals who are faced with organisational initiatives to move
information into the cloud and who are looking for a starting point on how
to tackle information management and security requirements in the cloud
environment. The unconference is divided into three streams (governance,
security and information management in the cloud) chaired and introduced
by three industry experts in their field. A short presentation from the
chair of each session is followed by an open workshop working through the
issues relating to the storage of information in the cloud from a
governance, security and IM angle as well as some possible approaches to
managing the cloud-based information environment. The highly
participative, open unconference format provides participants with the
opportunity to exchange opinions, ideas and approaches with fellow
information professionals in a friendly, yet informed environment.
