Four months ago I wrote a post to this blog talking about the Cloud Security Readiness Tool and one of the limitations during that time was the existence of only one scenario (SaaS). Today I’m pleased to share with you that the tool was updated and now you have IaaS and PaaS:
Recently Cloud Security Alliance announced an official endorsement by recommending the use of this tool to help organizations to review and understand their IT maturity level and how to better approach to cloud security challenges. So, if you are about to implement SaaS, IaaS or PaaS make sure to use this tool to assist you planning for cloud security.
Tom Shinder and I will be speaking at DFW IT PRO Meeting at Microsoft Las Colinas office next week (March 7th). We will be talking about the security enhancements in Windows Server 2012 from the private cloud perspective. The link to register is available here. You can find more information about DFW IT PRO Meetings in the link below:
See ya there!
The book that I co-wrote about Security+ is now available in Portuguese/Brazil and on the same week that the book was announced, CompTIA also announced that the Security+ Certification is now also available in Portuguese. The CompTIA Press Release from last week has a brief interview where I explain more about the book, more info here: http://www.comptia.org/news/pressreleases/13-02-20/CompTIA_Security_Certification_Exam_Now_Available_in_Portuguese_Language_Version.aspx
Syngress recently published the table of contents of our upcoming book, take a look on what’s coming:
Just to remember that the book is already available for pre-order at Amazon.
Last week I was on the road with Tom Shinder to present at TechReady (internal Microsoft conference in Seattle) and also to participate in some team meetings in Redmond. We used this opportunity to visit Mark Russinovich at his office and record Episode 25 of From End to Edge and Beyond. We had a great time talking to Mark about his books and also about Cybercrime and other security related subjects. Stay tune at http://aka.ms/FEEAB because you can’t miss this Episode that will be live next week!
Thanks for your time Mark!
