Robert will be presenting a session entitled, "Let's Get Unphysical" at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. He writes about the session, "while the benefits of virtualization are clear and measurable, what isn't so clear are the security ramifications of deploying critical application infrastructure in a virtual environment.

"Security conversations today are focused on mapping the current known security techniques to the virtual environment. This session will explore appropriate security techniques - control flow and data transformations, debugging resilience and software-based key and algorithm protection techniques."

Robert Grapes is Chief Technologist for Cloakware's Enterprise Solutions business. His expertise on enterprise security and Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) has enabled many large government and financial service organizations to meet their audit while reducing risk and improving operational efficiency.

Prior to joining Cloakware in 2004, Grapes spent many years with Entrust Technologies as a software toolkit product manager, with Cognos in vertical analyst relations, and with Allen-Bradley as a control systems automation developer.
