Wim Remes, Manager Information Security | Ernst and Young, Belgium

Working with Kai for our yearly team-building event was everything we expected it to be.
Not only is Kai an engaging person, his approach is designed to make the most out of the
experience. He went to great lengths to personalize the event and made sure that every
attendee got the most out of his sessions. Engaging a very diverse and demanding
audience seems to come natural to Kai. I would recommend working with Kai to anybody
who is looking for a professional, engaging, and client-oriented event.

The Cloud Security Rules

Ever wondered how to be successful when using cloud technology? Don't forget to look at the security side of the investment!
Cloud computing offer some great new possibilities that can be very seductive - namely cost-reduction, reduced electricity use, increased access, quick ROI and so forth. As with all new technology, there are also new security risks that must be considered.
This talk is a primer for executive level decision makers, where I share the best practices and the most important pitfalls to avoid when choosing to invest in (or move to) the cloud.
