Cyber security is essential to any organisation, yet many are still struggling with establishing an effective cyber security protection model to protect their critical and sensitive assets. Migration to cloud and working from anywhere are adding more complexity and uncertainty.

Is there a standard cyber security model organisations can take reference to? How can the model be implemented in a pragmatic way to balance security protection versus business agility?

The answers are all in this workshop!

Security Frameworks Covered

NIST has published a cyber security framework (CSF) a few years back. It consists of 5 functions and 23 categories. It is now regarded as a matured framework which can be adopted and implemented by different types of organisations in order to build a sound cyber security protection framework.

CSA has also published a cloud control matrix (CCM) which describes a set of control objectives to governance secured usage and implementation of cloud services. It consists of 16 control domains with over hundreds of detailed control specifications.


This training will explain in detail what CSF & CCM frameworks are and how they can be applied to protect an organisation’s critical assets and cloud usage. Practical examples will be shared to illustrate the best practices and tips of adopting these two frameworks.  

After the training, the audience will acquire deeper knowledge about NIST CSF and CSA CCM and the practical side of applying these frameworks to implement cyber security and cloud protection.
