Cloud computing security issues are at the top of every cloud user's mind. Network professionals need to understand the scope of cloud computing security risks, and how threats should be handled.

In this video, senior site editor Rivka Little sits down with Drew Bartkiewicz, CEO of CyberRiskPartners. Bartkiewicz discusses the most prevalent security risks when it comes to public and private clouds, such as how other cloud users are compromised when it comes to public clouds. Bartkiewicz also addresses how cloud providers are addressing these cloud security issues in a public model vs. private model, compiling threat profiles based on the size of the cloud infrastructure.
