08:00 AM June 30, 2017

Manila, Philippines — Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the global leader in defining Cloud computing research, standards, and security, will launch CSA Philippines Summit on July 11, 2017. The conference brings together thought leaders, innovators, Cloud companies, start-ups, and Cloud professionals to kickstart a movement that will champion best practices and secure Cloud adoption in the Philippines.


“Everything is going to the Cloud,” said Ryan Ty, Chairman of CSA Philippines. “CSA Philippines is committed to helping the country realize its full potential using Cloud technology, secure methods, and best practices. At the same time, we’re addressing issues and concerns about privacy and security by providing guidelines, framework, and events like the CSA Summit.”

The CSA Philippines Summit will open its doors for everyone interested in Cloud at Okada Manila, Paranaque City, where the latest solutions and products from leading technology providers and start-ups will be featured at the Summit’s Exhibit Hall and Cloud Incubation Corner. Exclusive portions of the program featuring indispensable insights and successful case-studies from local and international security experts will be held at the Plenary Hall, attracting hundreds of security professionals and C-level attendees to listen to the latest in Cloud technology.


The program will open with a keynote address by National Privacy Commission Chairman, Hon. Raymund Liboro, followed by expert insights from Former Head of Cloud Computing office in the IDA (Singapore) and CSA APAC Vice President, Dr. Lee Hing-Yan.

Department of ICT (DICT) Undersecretary Denis Villorente will discuss the administration’s “Cloud-First” policy, while author & RSA’s Principal Malware Scientist, Mr. Christopher Elisan, will give light to ransomware and emerging threats. Local and international thought leaders from Symantec, VMWare, EPLDT, Schneider-Electric, CISCO, Ever More Security, and DataOne Asia Philippines also join this year’s stellar conference line-up.

“We’ve seen how Cloud has disrupted the computing business in other countries. It has been a source of growth for firms that have embraced it and a challenge for those that have ignored it. The CSA Philippines is now here, and we’re looking for volunteers who would share their expertise and time to advocate Cloud.”

The first CSA Philippines Summit – slated on July 11, 2017 – will focus on promoting Cloud adoption, security, and technology in the local community. The CSA Philippines Summit serves as an annual roadmap to adopt Cloud security solutions that are present today and built for the next generation.
