(ISC)2 and Cloud Security Alliance Host Cloud Security Summit

Research cites strengthening of cloud security skills top priority over next three years

CLEARWATER, Fla. ,Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — (ISC)² today announced it’s partnering with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) for the CSA Summit, gathering world-leading security experts and cloud providers to discuss the latest cloud adoption trends and best practices for secure operation of cloud environments. The event is taking place ahead of (ISC)² Security Congress on September 24, 2017 at the JW Marriott Austin in Austin, TX.

As more companies migrate to the cloud and incorporate cloud services into business operations, a new wave of attack vectors surface for malicious actors to jeopardize personal and business assets,” said Wesley Simpson, (ISC)² chief operating officer. “To stay ahead of challenging attack methods coordinated through the cloud, the cybersecurity profession needs to focus resources on training talent working within cloud environments – the future of an agile enterprise. Partnering with organizations such as CSA is an important step to bring awareness to the challenges and opportunities associated with the cloud.”

Cloud Security is a Top Priority

According to (ISC)²’s 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study, 60% of cybersecurity professionals believe cloud security training is the top skill needed over the next three years. Moreover, and the number of professionals planning to acquire (ISC)²’s Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) within the next 12 months is on the rise.

Cloud Security Takes Center Stage at Congress

(ISC)² Security Congress brings together nearly 1,500 industry colleagues, offers more than 90 educational and thought-leadership sessions and fosters collaboration with other forward-thinking companies. The addition of the CSA Summit provides further resources for event attendees to remain current on the latest industry threats and best practices.

Simpson will host a collaborative session From 10% Cloud to 100% Cloud in 3 Years – How (ISC)² is Doing it and Putting Security First. Simpons will share the (ISC)² transition to a 100% cloud-based services model. This interactive discussion will explore how (ISC)² decided to go all in with cloud, why the cloud was the best option, how the team ensured its cloud strategy mapped to operational needs, and how security remains front and center throughout the entire process.
