Private vs public cloud security

How do you establish a private cloud securely? There are many different approaches to the focus on security in different organizations. Intellectual property needs to be secured, but how can you make sure you haven't forgot anything? 

Does it matter where your data is located if you know it's secure?

Social security numbers is an example of something that should be secured no matter if it's located internally or externally.

Can you be sure in a public cloud that other services can't access your in-memory data?

Does it make a difference to run a service on physical internal servers than on a private cloud?

Who has juridical ownership of your data? What if your data is located in another country? 

These things are among the topics that are discussed in episode 96 of the Virtualization Security Roundtable.
