Date: 18th Jun 2020, 12PM SGT

Presenter: Nati Hazut, CEO and Co-Founder, Polyrize
Panel Discussion: William Ho (Moderator) | Ian Loe | Yum Shoen Yih

As the use of business-oriented cloud apps and remote work proliferate, fragmented security controls have proven insufficient in securing user identities, access, and business critical data across the profusion of different cloud apps. Organizations need to rethink their security strategy to provide consistent predictive, proactive, and reactive security across their diverse SaaS and IaaS environments.

Join us in this live Webinar with Nati Hazut, CEO and Co-Founder of Polyrize for insights into:

  • The threat landscape in the remote cloud
  • Securing identities and privileges in a multi SaaS and cloud environments versus traditional on-premise networks
  • Building a cloud-first security stack to provide predictive, proactive, and reactive security across SaaS and IaaS environments
  • 5 things you should do now to secure identities and access

Webinar – Cloud Incident Response Need Not be Reactive

Date: 24th Jun 2020, 2PM SGT

Presented by: Prof Alex SIOW, Chairman CSA Singapore Chapter

In today’s connected era, a comprehensive incident response is an integral aspect of any organization aiming to manage and lower their risk profile. A good incident response needs to be useful not only when dealing with incidents caused by malicious threat actors, but should also be applicable in a variety of other situations such as downtime caused by an unexpected power outage or cut internet fiberfra due to roadworks. There are, however, different considerations when it comes to incident response for cloud-based infrastructure and systems, due in part to the nature of its shared responsibility.

Additionally, with a number of incident response standards, frameworks and guidelines available, it could be confusing for cloud providers and users to make sense of them for their cloud incident response (CIR) procedure. CSA’s CIR Framework will serve as a go-to guide for cloud users to effectively prepare for and manage the aftermath of cloud incidents, along with serving as a transparent and common framework for CSPs to share cloud incident response practices with their customers.

This talk will cover key contributions of the CIR Framework to the cloud community, and also make available a Quick Guide that distils the main objectives and overview of the CIR Framework.
