The Cloud Standards Customer Council will host a forum in Reston, Virginia, next month to bring together industry executives and offer insights into security and privacy challenges associated with cloud computing.

Mel Greer, a senior fellow and chief strategist at Lockheed Martin, will present during the CSCC Cloud Privacy Summit at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on March 26, the council said Wednesday.

Greer said business, technical and legal professionals will gather at the event “to examine the difference between security and privacy, the legal framework supporting the concept of privacy and the impact of privacy on cloud adoption.“

The other conference speakers are State Street Chief Privacy Officer Gerald Spada, Jason Baron of the law firm Drinker, Biddle & Reath and Harley Geiger, advocacy director and senior counsel at the Center for Democracy and Technology.

CSCC plans to conclude the forum with a discussion of the group’s efforts to develop standards to help organizations adopt cloud technology.
