Dear Member,
We are pleased to invite you to the Chapter Members Meeting as per details below.

Topic & Contents: “ Cloud Computing Security”
We have come a long way from the early days of cloud computing, when there was a lot of skepticism about the concept.
We have now started looking at cloud computing seriously for “Business Benefits with Security, Governance and Assurance Perspectives” as described by ISACA.

Following is the agenda for presentation:

2. Cloud Computing Security
