The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is pleased to announce this call for speakers to present at the inaugural Cloud Security Alliance Congress Asia Pacific 2013, held in Singapore from 14th to 17th May 2013.

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. A unique selling point of the congress is that it is a choice of platform for the sharing of research and guidance reports from various CSA working groups in some of the most critical areas of cloud computing including, mobile, big data and privacy. It is also used by the industry as a key platform for strategic announcements and establishment of partnerships.
