Designed to be a gathering of the world's leading minds in information security and definitive authorities in cloud computing, the CSA CISO APAC Forum will be the CSA's first main event in East Asia, having held both the first CSA CISO APAC Forum last November and the inaugural CSA Congress APAC this past May in Singapore.  This year's event will address, through presentations, case studies and first-hand experiences, some of the most controversial and debated topics in cloud security including panels on Cryptography and Privacy as a Business Model; Governmental Cloud Strategy and Experience Sharing; Big Data & Emerging Threats Experiences; Emerging Cyber Threats & Securing the Cloud; and The CISO Report 2013 and CISO Guide by OWASP.

"It is our mission to continue to reach out to the APAC region for contributions towards the establishment of a global trusted eco-system, as well as to review, reflect and address security, governance and policy challenges related to the APAC region, "said Aloysius Cheang, Managing Director APAC of the CSA.  "This year's event will helps us do that, and far more. We look forward to bringing this event to East Asia where companies, now more than ever, are focused on keeping pace with security threats and attacks while minimizing impact on business operations."

The conference will feature some of the region's and world's most influential minds in information security and cloud computing including,

  • Charles Mok, Legislative Councillor (Information Technology), Hong Kong SAR
  • Daniel Lai, Government Chief Information Officer (GCIO), Hong Kong SAR

The CISO APAC Forum will offer attendees a platform of cross-pollination of innovation, best practices and practical solutions for securing the cloud. The 2nd CSA APAC CISO Forum 2013 will focus on the security of emerging areas of growth and concern such as cybersecurity, cloud computing, mobile computing and big data. Government strategy, data and privacy issues brought about by the PRISM revelation, as well as start-up opportunities brought about by the third coming of the software industry, will be key discussion topics during the Forum.  The CSA enjoys a high level of trust and recognition in the worldwide market; as such, key international CSA events such as this Forum are often used as a choice platform for the launch of CSA research and guidance reports as well as strategic announcements and establishment of partnerships.

In addition to the many conference highlights scheduled to take place at the CSA CISO APAC Forum, a number of other new initiatives, announced at today's press conference, will also be introduced at the conference as well, including:

  • CSA APAC R&D Centre Launch:  A center, designed to foster R&D into cutting edge cloud security technologies with intellectual property creation and commercialization, and supported by over 10 major APAC companies.
  • New CSA APAC University and Research Institute Alliance:  An entity designed to create an APAC research collaboration framework that will promote inter-agency research into cloud computing security and collaboration.
