Storing information in the Cloud’ Unconference
21 May 2010 in Manchester

This workshop-based unconference was part of a project run by the Department of Information Studies at Aberystwyth University and funded by the Society of Archivists, looking into the security, operational and governance issues of storing information in the cloud. Our aim at this one-day workshop-based unconference was to generate debate and to highlight some of the security and governance issues surrounding the storage of information in a virtual environment.

The unconference was 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.
