Key speakers and sessions in the track include:

  • Tony Richards, Head of Security and Accreditation at G-Cloud/GDS
  • Daniele Catteddu and Jesus Luna, Research Director CSA EMEA, will speak on the upcoming report: Security Frameworks for Gov Cloud, produced by CSA and TUD Darmstadt on behalf of ENISA

Firmly established as the “go-to” event for cloud security across the EMEA region, CSA EMEA Congress 2014 will offer more than 30 conference sessions featuring 40 cloud security experts from all over the world.
