CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – November 2020

In last month’s knowledge sharing event, we focused in the methodology to develop and secure our PaaS environment. Do we still need to secure the cloud stem? Do we still need to secure the cloud architecture? How to secure that environment?

The common security challenges faced in the cloud stem from misconfiguration, compliance, and an exploding set of cloud infrastructure services. This session will cover how to combat these challenges and gain visibility into security, compliance, and governance vulnerabilities on your public cloud infrastructure.

We will go over the latest security offering that helps teams build a better cloud architecture. You can also look forward to hundreds of out-of-the-box, step-by-step remediation guides, enabling DevSecOps teams and cloud architects to quickly resolve vulnerabilities.

This upcoming knowledge sharing event, we invited Tony Lee, Head of Consulting of Trend Micro will lead us to the “Cloud operational excellence – Guardrails to build exceptional architecture & avoid misconfigurations“.

CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event -August 2020

In the past few months or more, the Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong & Macau Chapter has not gathered together for any events and knowledge sharing. But at the same time, we should have adopted to the “new normal” of the event. One of the changes, definitely, is more usage of cloud services and a virtual environment.

Is Virtual Bank one of the services you would like to try? But is that secure enough?  How to use that securely? This month we invited Captain (Rtd) Samuel NG of Welab Bank to give an interesting and technical topic on “Secure your virtual banking on the Cloud”.

Exciting times for Hong Kong in the realm of Fintech. With 8 bold challengers given the honor of virtual bank licenses, innovative digital banking services are coming real soon and definitely here to stay in the pearl of oriental. Virtual banks are expected to bring new dynamics to the traditional bricks-and-mortar banking sector and enable the city to align with the world’s market in Fintech development.

Upcoming debut of Virtual Banking services packaged with innovative and creativity by riding the cloud computing to the bank of the future, this excitement, however, leads to a higher controversially dynamic cybersecurity risks. VBs offering data-centric banking services with operations heavily rely on the cloud & internet are vulnerable to malicious attacks with various intentions.

Arguably virtual banks come with less physical and legacy trails offers better security, a new sets of challenges arise in cloud security. Fuel with “Go Big or Go Home” and “Do 10x better” mindset, Welab Bank’s Cybersecurity Team always walk the extra mile out of the comfort zone enforcing trust and security while deliver customer-centric services, aiming high to be the winner in Fintech Era.

CSA HK&M Event Resume on 6 Aug 2020

Dear members and fellow colleagues,

We have not met or arrange knowledge sharing last year. The Covid-19 virus created a long social distance for us to group together. But as we all know Cloud Environment is changing so fast, if we don’t keep up our knowledge together, we will be left behind.

In the past 6 months, I participated in a number of CCSP and CCSK training and coaching in Hong Kong and Asia Pacific region. We can see that more and more people are using cloud computing environment. Usually, security specialists will ask the following questions – How can we secure our applications and infrastructure in our cloud environment? How can we support the multi-cloud environment? How can we make use of container environment to build up a secure and portable application? Any standard that can we use in cloud security assessment and audit?

Definitely, as we get together we will have more and more questions, idea, and knowledge that we can share.

So CSA HK&M chapter after the formation of our new council and committee for 2020, we would like to bring our knowledge sharing to another new platform for the new normal environment.

In this series of coming activities, CSA HK&M knowledge sharing session will become monthly regular lunch time webinar mode. The first event will be on “Securing your Virtual Bank in the Cloud” by the Security team of Welab. They definitely will be able to share their experience and idea about the virtual bank.
