Benoit Heynderickx, Principal Analyst, ISF, Will be delivering a talk on best practices in cybersecurity at the CSA EMEA Congress 2019 in Berlin. Benoit’s talk will discuss using cloud services securely – a practical viewpoint.

Business and information security leaders are increasingly seeking new ways to gain confidence that they are deploying the right level of security controls and applying the necessary set of good practices to secure the use of recently acquired cloud services. However, cloud computing brings an additional layer of complexity with new technologies, new vendors and therefore new areas of concerns.

The Cloud Security Alliance is proud to host the 2019 EMEA Congress in the home of our new European Headquarters: Berlin, Germany. This multi-day conference will feature training, educational sessions and networking opportunities for cloud security professionals. Attendees, representing both end-user and industry viewpoints, will experience a unique mixture of compelling presentations and topical discussions on research, development, practice and requirements related to cloud security. This year marks the ten-year anniversary of CSA. From inception, the CSA has been dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment throughout the world. The CSA EMEA Congress is our time to reflect on the lessons learned by enterprises and providers as the cloud has become the dominant IT system in the market. We will also explore new frontiers that are accelerating change in information security, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and IoT. Join us in celebrating this milestone year at the CSA EMEA Congress as we bring key thought leaders to the main stage and look ahead to the next ten years of cloud security.
