ISACA & ISMA event 29th September 2020

We have the great pleasure to invite you to our next seminar organized by ISACA in collaboration with ISMA:

"Security in the Cloud Age or the New Life of CISOs".

The days when our servers were all still in a datacenter to which we had the key are long gone. Just as information is becoming dematerialized, IT infrastructures and applications are following the same path, becoming nothing more than commodities and services. Between agility and security, the Cloud is forcing us to review our security certainties and principles.

During the presentation in French, we will explore the new threats related to the cloud and the answers we can provide.

This conference will be hosted by

Magin Lopez
Information and Cybersecurity Senior Manager at International Olympic Committee

and will take place

on September 29, 2020 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Given the pandemic situation, the seminar will be organized as an interactive video-conference.
In order to allow us to organize the session in the best conditions, we would be grateful if you could confirm, your participation in this session also valid for your continuing education statements, by registering online  until September 18th 2020.
