CSA Data Protection Heat Index Survey and Webinar Invitation

I recently participated in Evelyn de Souza’s Data Protection Heat Index survey for the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). That turned into a great discussion and I’ve been invited to give my views on Privacy By Design at a Webinar Wednesday September 24 07:00 GMT. Here’s the webinar link – RSVP HERE NOW – and the webinar description below.


The CSA and Cisco will be announcing the results of a comprehensive survey of cloud security professionals on data privacy considerations. The survey responses highlight a growing and strong interest in harmonizing privacy laws towards a universal set of principles. But what does this really mean as you develop cloud services for your organization? And, how do you build in data privacy consideration into the development phase of cloud, IoT and Big Data versus bolting it on post implementation?

Join the Cloud Security Alliance and our panel of experts in:

  • Discussing key findings from the Data Protection Heat Index survey
  • Identifying key areas of commonality versus deviations in data privacy regulations
  • Gaining insights into how to consider building privacy into Cloud, IoT and Big Data during the development phase

On Wednesday, September 24th 9:00am (PDT), you are invited to attend a CSA CloudBytes on:
