CloudeAssurance Founder Invited to Present at the NetDiligence® 2014 Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum
The unique event brings together leading Cyber liability insurers, re-insurers, risk managers and service providers.
ATLANTA, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — CloudeAssurance, Inc. an eFortresses company is proud to announce that its founder, Taiye Lambo, will be presenting one of its most valuable research efforts entitled “Cloud Security Benchmark: Top 10 Cloud Service Providers Q1 2014″ at the NetDiligence® Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum scheduled for June 12-13, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The CloudeAssurance platform is standards based and is utilized by organizations to self-assess or independently assess, score and benchmark their information security program against standards such as PCI-DSS 3.0, FedRAMP, ISO 27001:2013, ISO 9001, ISO 21827, CSA GRC Stack (CCM and CAIQ), HIPAA, NIST Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.0 and EU Safe Harbor.
eFortresses, based on its CloudeAssurance platform, has been recognized by Gartner as 1 of only 4 Cool Vendors in Risk Management and Compliance 2013 (https://www.gartner.com/doc/2474316).
“A major concern for cyber liability insurers and insured organizations that rely on cloud computing is whether their cloud service providers have appropriate data security and privacy practices in place,” explained Mark Greisiger, president of NetDiligence. “NetDiligence and CloudeAssurance have each been actively working to identify and quantify cloud risk. We are delighted to invite Taiye Lambo, CloudeAssurance founder, to speak at our forum to elevate this important issue and promote awareness of the risks associated with cloud computing.”
“The high adoption rate of cloud computing services has created a real need for an industry-wide standard of due-diligence management of security, compliance, cloud governance and cloud risk management on the part of cloud service providers and their customers, auditors, underwriters and brokers,” noted Taiye Lambo, founder of CloudeAssurance. This, in turn, has created a need for cloud assessment and independent validation, so that cloud service providers can prove they adhere to appropriate and reasonable standards of data security and privacy. We’re delighted that NetDiligence chose to include our cloud security benchmark data in the hundreds of cyber risk assessments they conduct each year and they are now allowing us to share this data at their Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum”.
