CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – September 2018

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.

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.


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.

Started as an engineer with Websense in 2003, William became a subject matter expert in both web security and data loss prevention.  He was involved in some of the largest DLP deployments in the region with well over 30,000 endpoints across eight APAC countries.
