Highlight:
This is the largest EA forum in Hong Kong organised by Hong Kong Computer Society Enterprise Architecture Specialist Group (HKCS EASG). Having come to the 8th year, we are going to deliver it as a virtual live event with the theme “Architecture Evolution in the Digital Age”. Experience sharing and case studies on the IT architecture evolution, due to the digital transformation with emerging technologies (such as Micro-services, DevOps, Containers, Data Analytics, IoT, 5G and AI etc), would be our major focuses. As such, several seasoned IT leaders from various large enterprises will discuss their viewpoints and share real-life scenarios of adopting these emerging technologies in the digital era with us. We will also cover the best practices, the challenges and lessons learnt they encountered in their experiences. Simply put, it will definitely be a valuable opportunity for us to network with these speakers and other IT architects as to exchange knowledge and share our experiences.

Dear PISA members,

PISA uses Yahoo! Groups as our discussion board and electronic mailing service. [PISAM] is the common group for us to distribute our messages to PISA members. Sadly, Yahoo!

(Thanks Yahoo! Groups for providing the service in the past.)

The PISA Executive Committee has decided to change our mailing list service to Groups.io. Our valid members will receive our invitation from "pisam@groups.io Moderators" in the coming few days. The last batch of invitations will NOT be later than 15-NOV. Please accept the invitation and join our new PISAM group.

The invitation email maybe drops into your JUNK/ SPAM folder. Please take a look, release it and try to whitelist [pisam] emails in the future.

Supporting Event: The 13th CIO Executive Virtual Summit 2020 (25-26 Nov 2020)

Date: 25-26 Nov 2020 (Wed-Thur)
Time: 8:45am – 1:15pm
Venue: Virtual Environment
Language: English
Register: https://form.mig-events.com/cio2020/

Highlight:
Even as companies grapple with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is already clear that CIOs are playing a central role in navigating the crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a human tragedy, and technology is on the front lines of this crisis. Many of the changes reshaping how we work and live – from employees working remotely to consumers shifting their shopping online – rely on technology. And because technology ties so much of every company together, CIOs have a unique view into what’s really going on and how to manage it. The most successful organizations take risks in “the turns”, those places in the enterprise journey where others slow down.

Carrying the theme of “Preparing To Win In The Turns’’, this premier annual CIO event targeting 200+ CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, C-level delegates and IT decision makers dedicates in optimizing delegates’ digital and business information technology management with a new strategic outlook and equips CIOs and CXOs with insight into how they should prepare and lead in the turns, building agility into systems, processes, and decision-making, both within their teams and among their peers.

Supporting Event: Adopting Zero Trust for Remote Access

Date: 20 Jan 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 11:00am
Venue:  Live Webinar
Language: English
Fee: Free
Register: https://www.isc2.org/News-and-Events/Webinars/APAC-Webinars?commid=454673&utm_source=chapter

Highlight:
By definition, a Zero Trust security model advocates the creation of zones and segmentation to control sensitive IT resources. This also entails the deployment of technology to monitor and manage data between zones, and more importantly, user interactions within a zone(s). A Zero Trust security model redefines the architecture of a trusted network inside a defined corporate perimeter. This is relevant today since technologies and processes like the cloud, DevOps, and IoT have either blurred, or dissolved altogether, the idea of a traditional perimeter.

While the Zero Trust model has become a trendy catchword in IT, it is complex and difficult to implement for many organizations in Asia Pacific, because it requires the establishment of a model of trust, verification, and continuous evaluation of trust for further access and lateral movement.

Join BeyondTrust and (ISC)² on Jan 20, 2021 (Wed) at 11am (GMT +8), Ajay Kumar, Director for Security Engineering at BeyondTrust, review the practical shortcomings and limitations of a Zero Trust model, and explain how to achieve Zero Trust using the Privileged Remote Access model.

Presenter: Ajay Kumar, Director for Security Engineering – APJ, BeyondTrust
Moderator: Hoo Chuan-Wei, CISSP, Technical Advisor – Asia-Pacific, (ISC)²

Highlight:
Today’s applications have become the focal point for cybercriminals, on which financial fraud and abuse are constantly happening. A misunderstanding of what does and does not protect your digital footprint can lead to devastating breaches, while some companies are still believe in and even base real business decisions and security outcomes on misconceptions. It’s critical to bust the myths and get back to better protection.
