CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – April 2018

CSA Knowledge Sharing Event provides an excellent opportunity for cybersecurity professionals to discuss the latest trends and developments in IT and in the process build a close-knitted cybersecurity community in Hong Kong and Macau.

This month we have invited Mr Ralph Wu, Sales Engineer of CyberArk, to deliver a technical briefing entitled “Security checkpoints to consider along the Cloud journey”.

THE TALK:

Today, an increasing number of organizations are taking advantage of the benefits of cloud-based infrastructure by making the journey to public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Some that are further along in their cloud journeys leverage DevOps pipelines to increase their business agility, while others focus on cost savings and access to on-demand compute.

The business benefits are very real, but as more business-critical applications and services migrate to the cloud, ensuring the security of these cloud workloads becomes essential—as does the need to maintain and enforce enterprise-wide security policies in a consistent way.

During this sharing session, CyberArk will share the security checkpoints we have to consider and how could we use Privileged Account Security solution to address those areas.

THE SPEAKER: Ralph Wu, Sales Engineer, CyberArk

Ralph Wu is the Sales Engineer at CyberArk, Hong Kong & Macau. He is assisting different Enterprises to design Privileged Account Security Solution to against cyber threats and secure valuable data – the Heart of the Enterprise.

Ralph has more than 15 years in Infrastructure and Cybersecurity domain. Prior joining CyberArk, he is Solutions Manager of HKT.

Official CCSP Training resume in Hong Kong

Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) is named to be one of the top security certificate in cybersecurity industry. Many practitioners look for official training in Hong Kong and Macau. However, as previous official training institution terminated the arrangement with ISC2, no official CCSP training has been organised for over 6 months.

Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) has been recently appointed as the official training institution for ISC2 related training. So HKPC put their efforts together to re-initiate their first CCSP training on 19 – 22, 26 Mar 2018.

As training material was updated last year, audience will be able to get the updated official training materials from official instructors on CCSP training.

Besides, CSA HK&Macau chapter members will be able to get discount from HKPC as well. Please feel free to contact Ms. Tracy Choy at (852) 2788 5884 or tracyc@hkpc.org for enquiry. You can also find the information from their leaflet.
