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.

CSA HKM supports BSI Cloud Security and Green Data Center Conference 2016

Nowadays, the need for more costeffective storage and software solutions together with mobile access has led to a rise in the adoption of cloud computing.

While the benefits of cloud computing are clear, the flexibility and openness of the cloud computing model has created a number of security concerns about the privacy integrity and availability of data.

In fact, apart of the cyber trust issues, the high running costs of data centre, is also another key problem to data centre owers as the energy cost of data centres is known to make up a significant percentage of a business operating costs.

In this conference, we are going to discuss the latest cyber security and data greening issues, explore the solutions to the above challenges and the latest market information of cloud security and green data centre applications !
