The Emirates Identity Authority, the United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN) and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) are jointly conducting this first Open Government Data Forum 2014 from 28-29 April 2014 at Ritz Carlton Hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This unique event coincides with CloudeAssurance launching a new online course for the recently released NIST Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.0 mandated by President Barack Obama.

With global cloud services revenue projected to reach $148.8 billion annually by 2014 (source: Gartner), Information Security will either become a nightmare or an enabler for cloud adoption, evidenced by the recent highly publicized cloud security breaches and continuously emerging threats.

As a SaaS platform, CloudeAssurance is the industry's first truly risk-intelligent rating, continuous education and continuous monitoring system to assure a cloud service provider's cloud security as well as governance, risk and compliance. CloudeAssurance protects customers by measuring cloud service providers' ability to securely deliver services in accordance with industry best practices, standards, and regulatory compliance.

The CloudeAssurance platform is standards based and can be utilized by organizations to self-assess or independently assess, score and benchmark their information security program against standards such as PCI-DSS 3.0, FedRAMP, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 21827, CSA GRC Stack (CCM and CAIQ), HIPAA, NIST Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.0 and EU Safe Harbor.

eFortresses based on its CloudeAssurance  platform has been recognized by Gartner as 1 of only 4 Cool Vendors in Risk Management and Compliance 2013 (https://www.gartner.com/doc/2474316).

Having actively participated in each of the 5 framework development workshops hosted by NIST in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security DHS, White House and other stakeholders, CloudeAssurance leveraged the HISPI Top 20 Mitigating Controls from 2012 and 2013 to help shape the development of the recently published NIST Cybersecurity Framework by ensuring that most of these critical controls were included in this publication.

"Having spent nearly 20 years assisting Global companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Verizon and Government agencies such as UK Central Government, European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA), US State and Federal Government, Canadian Government, Greek Government, Lebanese Government, Taiwanese Government and the United Nations (UN) to secure their critical assets, I gladly accepted the invitation to speak at this unique event to share my experience in the area of cloud security as it relates to the concept of Open Government. I also look forward to learning from fellow experts," explained Taiye Lambo, Founder of CloudeAssurance.
