CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – July 2016 (Revised)

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.

The original talk by Mr Erick Borsboom, Security Lead of Ribose, on “Linux Operation System Hardening for Cloud Images and Containers” will be replaced by a presentation on how to achieve ISO 27017 from Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose who is the first organisation to receive certifications for both ISO27017 and ISO 27018.
ISO/IEC 27017 and ISO/IEC 27018 are the latest international standards relating to security in the cloud. Given that different cloud security assurance schemes already exist, including the authoritative CSA STAR programs, what do these new standards mean, to the cloud service user and to the cloud service provider? How do different assurance schemes compare?
In this talk, Ronald will dive into these standards and their background to discover the benefits they bring and how they affect the assurance landscape.
