CSA Congress US Presentations Available

A message from Jim Reavis, Chief Executive Officer of Cloud Security Alliance:

Dear CSA Membership,

As we enter into our 6th year of operation, we are seeing tremendous growth in enterprise usage of cloud computing. When we started CSA, cloud was often being used as a pilot or prototype for future IT systems. Clearly the future has arrived, and cloud computing is a pervasive presence and often the dominant force in enterprise IT.

Many examples of the maturation of cloud were on display at the recently concluded CSA Congress. There were many terrific presentations and sidebar conversations about security lessons learned at our most heavily attended Congress yet. Many of these presentations are now online and available at the URL at the bottom of this message.

Much of the innovation that is required to make your adoption of cloud secure and aligned with your risk posture is coming from the CSA corporate members. We would like to thank the CSA corporate members who sponsored CSA Congress and encourage you to learn how you can partner with these organizations to secure your cloud adoption roadmap.

Brainloop
Brainloop is the market-leading provider of highly intuitive SaaS solutions that enable our customers to securely manage and collaborate on confidential documents and information, whether inside or outside of their IT environments. When we founded the company in 2000, we saw businesses making major gains in productivity and competitiveness by using the Internet to collaborate with external partners. But the same tools that made collaboration so effective also wreaked havoc on the security and control over information distribution that companies relied on. A lot of companies tried to bring security and collaboration together by using virtual data rooms, but fell short on policy compliance. We saw a need to go beyond that, to create an easy-to-use online platform that companies can use to roll out their confidentiality policies so that users are automatically in compliance, every time they share a document. www.brainloop.com
