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.
Stay tune for new updates.
