SmartVault CEO, Eric Pulaski, to Share Insights on the Cloud

An expert on data security, compliance, and cloud computing, Pulaski begins series of educational speaking engagements for the accounting profession

HOUSTON, TX – October 21, 2010 – SmartVault, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) document management solutions, today announced that CEO, Eric Pulaski, will soon kick off a series of speaking engagements that take him to Canada and across the United States. With more than 20 years of network security system experience, Pulaski will address many hot topics within the profession—including security of client data is a SaaS world, compliance, and what is required to set up shop in the Cloud. Pulaski’s speaking tour begins this month at Sage’s Simply Partnership 2010 conference in Vancouver, BC.

“I’m looking forward to sharing what I know about the Cloud and answering all the security questions that always come with it,” stated SmartVault founder and CEO, Eric Pulaski. “The accounting profession is picking up the pace in terms of adopting SaaS-based applications, but overall is still slow to adopt. My goal is to educate accounting professionals about the Cloud in an effort to make them more comfortable with the technology and, ultimately, move them toward full adoption.”

Pulaski will share such information as why storing and sharing documents and data in the Cloud is more secure than traditional methods such as email. He will also provide insight into the efficiencies that online collaboration offers firms, as well as best practices for securely sharing files between firm and client.

“My main goal is to educate,” Pulaski restated. “As humans, we are innately resistant to what we don’t understand. The unknown is risky, and accountants don’t tend to like risk. Through education, the ‘unknown’ factor is removed so firms can begin to move forward.”

Pulaski’s speaking tour begins at the Sage Simply Partnership conference in Canada. Subsequent engagements include The Sleeter Group Accounting Solutions Conference and Accounting Today’s Growth & Profitability Summit.
