Assessing Cloud Providers – A Practical Approach from the CSA

The business benefits of moving to the cloud are quite compelling, however, with those benefits come concerns. The most significant challenge facing companies that are either moving to the cloud as a consumer or as a service provider is ensuring the security of the services that are provided. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) was formed to help ease this challenge. The CSA’s guidance is adopted as the defacto standard for accessing the security of cloud providers across the software security market.

While this guidance has helped greatly, there is still the very challenging question of creating a standard set of questions for organizations to ask a provider in order to understand how they have implemented the CSA guidance. This is where the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAI) comes into play. The questionnaire is a CSA-developed tool for both consumers and providers of cloud services to use as common criteria for determining cloud security.

This hands-on and prescriptive web seminar will review both the CSA guidance and how the CAI can be used in day-to-day business to help companies assess cloud providers. Attendees will walk away with a firm grasp on the questions to ask or to be prepared to answer- whichever side of the cloud equation they are on.

  • BYOD poses a curious challenge for security teams – how can you secure enterprise data on a device that you don’t own? And how can you provide the necessary security while still respecting the user’s expectations for privacy? These issues aren’t easily addressed with traditional technology, leading many organizations to a frustrating problem for securing BYOD.

    Join Palo Alto Networks and VMware AirWatch in this special webinar to learn:

    · The security challenges with BYOD
    · The issues and limitations with traditional security architectures in a mobile world
    · Advice on delivering the appropriate security measures to make BYOD safe
  • The Pentagon reports 10 million cyberattacks daily. Federal, state and local government agencies need to safeguard information and maintain control when addressing internal mandates for cloud migration. Do you know how many attacks you are experiencing on a daily basis? Do you know where those attacks are coming from? How long they have been in your environment?

    While there is no silver bullet to combating either external or internal cyberattacks, there are steps you can take to build a defense strategy to protect your agency. Beyond just detecting attacks, you need to build up your defenses and take the necessary steps to protect your data and applications.

    In this session, we will discuss how you can leverage the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite to help:
    1. Monitor behavior on your internal network and detect abnormal behavior
    2. Identify authentication irregularities from your users
    3. Protect applications using two-factor authentication
    4. Restrict access to confidential data
