Presentation Summary:   “Cloud Access Security Brokers – What’s All the Hype?”  An introduction to the growing Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) space, with demonstrations of some of the most common use cases for protecting sensitive data in a world where data is being moved to and shared in the cloud as the traditional perimeter disappears.

Speaker:  Alejandro “Ale” Cadena began his information security journey over sixteen years ago in the Marine Corps, leading to work in the Department of Defense where he focused his expertise on a broad swath of technologies. After a move to Seattle where he resides today, he helped build and protect the T-Mobile USA network as a Senior Security Engineer with a heavy emphasis on large scale proxy and firewall implementations. For the last several years Ale has shifted his focus to helping his customers and architect complex data security solutions for private and public cloud implementations. He is currently a Sr. Sales Engineer at Neskope and spends his free time seeking out great live music or experimenting with exotic spices in his kitchen.

COBIT 5 User Group

The Boise Chapter of ISACA is starting a COBIT 5 User Group.  COBIT 5 is ISACA’s framework to help organizations govern and manage enterprise IT.  What makes COBIT 5 so unique is it is an umbrella framework that leverages other compliance and operational frameworks.  Such framework areas as Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) compliance, PCI, HIPAA, service management, and project management fit very well under the umbrella.  The Boise chapter wants to set up a user group that will meet every other month for an hour or two to share ideas, best practices, and learnings on implementing COBIT 5.  We encourage IT executives, managers and professionals to participate in this user group forum.

Please contact John Stiffler at if you are interested in attending the user group meetings.  Once we have 7 to 10 interested individuals, we will schedule our first user group session.
