CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – September 2018

This month we have invited Mr William Tam, Director of Sales Engineering, APAC, of Forcepoint LLC, to deliver a talk on the best practices in Cloud application security.

The TALK:

Making use of Cloud technology is unavoidable nowadays.  For most Cloud adopters and developers, security features aren’t their top of mind. Because there are no real standard practices yet, the risks presented by the myriad Cloud applications varies widely. For Security practitioners, comparing to traditional security design, they may have difficult time to design security controls for Cloud users as Cloud is very dynamic and flexible in nature.  In this seminar, we will walk you through the challenges we face in adopting Cloud, best practises in Cloud Security and solutions that can help Security practitioners achieve their control objectives.

SPEAKER:  William Tam, Director of Sales Engineering, APAC, Forcepoint LLC

With over 25 year of experience in cyber security, William is leading a team of security evangelist and product specialist across Asia Pacific, helping customers to embrace the cloud securely and manage the risk in digital  transformation with a human centric approach by focusing on the rhythm of people as well as the flow of data in and out of the organization.
