Security concerns can raise fears about using cloud for business and applications. In this new BELTUG X-change, we examined two important security aspects of the cloud:
- how to implement your own security policy for cloud applications, and
- how to perform an audit for the cloud solutions.
We learned about cloud access security brokers (CASBs): software that consolidates multiple types of security policy enforcement, from authentication to malware detection/prevention and much more.
We also explored how to organise an audit to verify, evaluate and check the reality of your cloud security.
Frank Staut, Managing Partner at SecureLink, talked about CASB solutions and IAM solutions that protect your cloud applications:
- The absolute importance of identity access management in cloud environments
- Monitoring and controlling the usage of cloud applications
Marc Vael, Chief Audit Executive at Smals and President of ISACA Belgium, gave us some real-life cases: lessons learnt and best practices on audits
- Watch your definitions: a cloud solution is not an outsourcing case!
- Cloud computing management: audit/assurance program (tangibles)
- Governance questions the Board of Directors should ask about cloud
The session closed, as usual, with lots of questions from our members.
