Course Overview

Cyber security has become a crucial enabler for any successful digital transformation process. Nevertheless, many organisations are still struggling to establish a effective cyber security protection model to protect their critical and sensitive assets. Gradual migration to the cloud and working from anywhere are adding complexity and uncertainty to the protection model too.

Are there any cyber security standards in the market which can be referred to? How should these be implemented in a pragmatic way to balance security protection versus business agility? Come and find your answers from us now!

Security Frameworks Covered
NIST has published a cyber security framework (CSF) a few years back. It consists of 5 functions and 23 categories. It is now regarded as a matured framework which can be adopted and implemented by different types of organisations in order to build a sound cyber security protection framework.

CSA has also published a cloud control matrix (CCM) which describes a set of control objectives to governance secured usage and implementation of cloud services. It consists of 16 control domains with over hundreds of detailed control specifications.

This training will explain in detail what CSF & CCM frameworks are and how they can be applied to protect an organisation’s critical assets and cloud usage. Practical examples will be shared to illustrate the best practices and tips of adopting these two frameworks. 

After the training, the audience will acquire deeper knowledge about NIST CSF and CSA CCM and the practical side of applying these frameworks to implement cyber security and cloud protection.

Target Participants
Individual who are interested in cloud deployment and familiar with network architecture and management, such as:

  • System Integrators
  • System Administrators / Engineers / Analysts
  • Technical Engineers / Managers
  • Information Security Analysts / Managers
