SGS was recently invited to share the experiences with the industry on the potential risks when using cloud services in a seminar ‘Personal Data Risk in Cloud – An Operational Perspective’ organized by HKGCC on 28 February 2017. The seminar focused on the security and privacy issues when storing data into the cloud. We are glad that there were over 50 participants from various enterprises joining this seminar, including the Hong Kong Electric Investments Ltd, the Gammon Construction Ltd and the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation.

With the proliferation of mobile and cloud technology uses, the movement and exchange of information is becoming easier and more frequent. These technologies bring us convenience yet threats at the same time. It is common to see organizations breaching privacy regulations without knowing it and they would have to bear the risk at the end.

Mr. Chris Yau, Senior Manager, Products and Services Development, and Ms. Rani Lui, Hong Kong ICT Product Manager, shared their experiences on personal data security and privacy when managing cloud services from an operational perspective. They talked about potential risks and legal issues on data privacy protection and tips on how to prevent them. They also introduced four main stream cloud certification standards in the industry: ISO/IEC 27017, ISO/IEC 27018, EuroCloud StarAudit, and CSA STAR.

It is hoped that this seminar would bring to the industry a new perspectives on managing security and privacy risk when using cloud technologies, and help to prepare for implementation of various International Standards in the future.
