Flashback "SECURITY IN THE CLOUD AGE OR THE NEW LIFE OF CISOs"

The 2020 edition of the seminar, which took place in the form of a video conference, attracted more than 40 CISO and experts who actively participated to the isaca isma"questions and answers" session to clarify the security problems related to the new cloud-era.
