By Frank Guanco, Research Project Manager, CSA Global Last week, the CSA Congress and IAPP Privacy Academy teamed up in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Privacy.Security.Risk. (PSR) conference. This was the second privacy and security conference that the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) co-hosted and the conference was a successful event with cloud security and privacy professionals learning about best practices, the current state of affairs in their respective fields, and cross-training and learning new disciplines. During CSA Congress at PSR, there were a number of releases, events, awards, speakers, and sessions that ran the gamut of the CSA's Research Portfolio. Below are links that recap some of the activity during CSA Congress 2015 at PSR.
