Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization working to provide the best possible service in providing security to Cloud Computing and imparting education to make Cloud computing safe and secure, has made an announcement that it has stretched out its leadership team with the addition of several key volunteer leadership appointments, marketing and membership activities in the CSA Asia Pacific (APAC) Region. Together with the APAC Executive Council with Ken Low of Trend Micro as the current chairman, this completes the management structure of CSA APAC.
The CSA APAC leadership team which works with the aim to serve their membership base in a better way, works for chapter membership management, research, marketing and corporate membership management. The CSA APAC leadership team has appointed Freddy Tan, Cyber Security Strategist with Microsoft as CSA APAC Strategic Advisor; Dr. Ryan Ko, Senior Lecturer with the Computer Science department and leader of the Cyber Security Lab with the University of Waikato as CSA APAC Research Advisor; Stephanie Chan, President of Phitech Corporation as CSA APAC Marketing Head for the East and South Asia regions and Hong-Sin Kwek, International Liaison Officer with CIO16 Association and IT industry veteran as the CSA APAC Marketing Head for the Australia and New Zealand Regions (ANZ), and Southeast Asia regions. The team is also extending to areas which either haven’t come under CSA’s influence or have come just in touch with the concept of Cloud.
Jim Reavis, Executive Director of the CSA said, “The APAC region remains a core strategic region for cloud security and membership growth. We have found that it is of strategic importance to attract a talented and diverse team to support the vision and goals of the organization. On behalf the CSA, I would like to acknowledge and thank these esteemed individuals for the time and dedication that will be put forward in the months ahead.”
“We are seeing incredible interest in CSA throughout APAC, and tremendous growth in our regional chapters,” said Aloysius Cheang, Managing Director APAC, for the Cloud Security Alliance. “We are very fortunate to have such a remarkable team in place who are dedicated and passionate about helping further our mission of promoting secure cloud computing for organizations and end users locally and globally.”
The CSA APAC team took part in the inaugural CSA APAC Congress which took place on May 15-16 at the Marriott Hotel in Singapore. The CSA Congresses continue to be the industry’s premier gathering for IT security professionals and executives who must further educate themselves on the rapidly evolving subject of cloud security. In addition to offering best practices and practical solutions for remaining secure in the cloud, CSA Congress will focus on emerging areas of growth and concern in cloud security, including standardization, transparency of controls, mobile computing, Big Data in the cloud and innovation.
