CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – August 2022

With an exploding set of cloud infrastructure services and an increasing number of stakeholders involved in infrastructure and security decisions, the cloud has formed the perfect storm for security. In the ever-evolving threat landscape, organisations need capabilities in place to help detect and respond rapidly to threats that may breach defenses. Today, many organizations use multiple, separate security layers to detect threats across their email, endpoints, servers, cloud infrastructure, and networks, leading to siloed threat information and an overload of uncorrelated alerts.

In the Knowledge Sharing Event organised by Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong & Macau Chapter on August 11, our guest speaker, Alan Leung from Trend Micro will introduce ways to broaden an organisation’s scope of detection and response across endpoint, email, networks, servers, and cloud workloads; as well as collecting and analyzing diverse data quickly empowers teams to understand, mitigate, and respond to risk.

Please do not miss this opportunity to learn from the expert and get connected with your peers.

Participants will claim 1 CPE.

[CSA Report] SaaS Governance Best Practices for Cloud Customers

Prepared by the SaaS Governance Working Group under Cloud Security Alliance, the SaaS Governance Best Practices for Cloud Customers report provides a baseline set of SaaS governance best practices to help organizations leverage the full potential of SaaS environments. With the global SaaS industry estimated to reach 441 billion dollars* by 2027, a critical question grows: can organizations shift how they handle cybersecurity?

Adopting SaaS applications and solutions requires updated protocols for protecting data. This new publication provides guidance and defines three components for a cohesive strategy toward SaaS governance and security.

Organizations that fail to adopt an updated security governance mindset may experience: 

  • Breaches that disclose sensitive data 
  • Revenue loss
  • Tarnished reputation
  • Damaged customer trust
  • Regulatory consequences 

Learn how to implement practices that protect sensitive data throughout the entire SaaS lifecycle – evaluation, adoption, usage, and termination.
