Telecom Lead Team:
Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) announced
the launch of major initiatives to address the needs in cloud security —
Mobile Computing and Innovation.


The Mobile Computing Initiative will focus on areas like
Securing application stores and other public entities deploying software to
mobile devices; Cloud-based management, provisioning, policy, and data
management of mobile devices to achieve security objectives; Guidelines for the
mobile device security framework and secure mobile cloud architectures; and
Best practices for secure mobile application.


CSA’s initiatives in these areas will focus on
accelerating delivery of a trusted cloud ecosystem, furthering the
organization’s mission to promote the use of best practices for providing
security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses
of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.


  Our active, lively group of over 30,000 members
fosters great discussion on a daily basis, and it’s clear there is demand for
additional guidance and thought leadership in the areas of mobility and
innovation,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder and Executive Director of the
CSA. We have listened to the challenges that both practitioners and
innovators face, and we are excited to begin work in these crucial new areas.”


The Innovation Initiative will identify key structural
issues related to trust and security that will inhibit the adoption of next
generation information technology. They include: Articulate the guiding
principles and objectives that IT innovators must address and Incubate
technology solutions that align with our principles and address the systemic
gaps we have identified.
