GCRCB aims to promote to the worldwide Chinese-speaking security professional community the CSA initiatives. An example of the CSA initiatives is the Trusted Cloud Initiative, which helps cloud providers develop identity, access and compliance management configurations and practices. The GCRCB also aims to conduct study and research on industry requirements and business cases in the region.
"Greater China is one of the key regions leading cloud computing adoption," said Aloysius Cheang, CSA's Asia Pacific strategy advisor.
"The establishment of the CSA Greater China Regional Coordinating Body will help us further our mission of understanding and resolving the issues of trust, security and privacy facing cloud computing, both from a local perspective as well as contributing ultimately to the global understanding," Cheang said.
