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 !

CSA Knowledge Sharing Event – February 2016

Turn any cloud into a trusted and compliant environment

ABSTRACT:

To fully capitalize on the strategic potential of the cloud, you need to know that your data is secure, wherever it resides. By addressing cloud security challenges such as data control, accessibility, and visibility, you can ensure that you are the only one who controls access and the keys to your data – especially across multitenant, geographically distributed sites.

Whether it’s a public, private, hybrid cloud, or virtualized data center, it is crucial to ensure enterprises have confidentiality and integrity of cloud data and business processes.
