The main objective of this working group is to identify and share the challenges, risks and best practices for the development, deployment and management of secure cloud services in the financial services industry.
Cloud Security Research for Financial Services
CSA Research crowd-sources the knowledge and expertise of security experts and helps address the challenges and needs they’ve experienced, or seen others experience, within the cybersecurity field. Each publication is vendor-neutral and follows the peer review process outlined in the CSA Research Lifecycle. We recommend getting started by reading the following documents.
Cloud Usage in the Financial Services Sector
This survey takes the temperature of cloud computing in the financial sector and provides guidance to accelerate adoption of secure cloud services. These takeaways will inform the Financial Services working group and serve as actionable items to address the concerns and opportunities associated with cloud computing and financial services.
Cloud Octagon Model
The Cloud Octagon Model is an approach to assess risk in SaaS cloud computing. It provides practical guidance and structure to all involved risk parties in order to keep pace with rapid changes in privacy and data protection laws and regulations, and changes in technology. The model stems from an approach conceptualized and implemented by the cloud security group within the Technology & Engineering department, Corporate Information Security Office (CISO), ABN AMRO Bank NV (Netherlands).
Blockchain DLT Use Cases
Blockchain technology is primarily associated with Bitcoin cryptocurrency at this point. However, many other business models are currently taking advantage of blockchain technology and other DLT properties without cryptocurrency features. This publication details several use cases including how blockchain could be leveraged in the financial industry for Nostro Bank Account Reconciliations.
