Cloud Security Alliance Establishes Incident Management and Forensics Working Group




SEATTLE, WA — (Marketwired) — 06/27/13 — The (CSA) today announced the formation of the Incident Management and Forensics Working Group, a new CSA Working Group that will focus on the examination of incident handling and forensics in cloud environments.

To better understand the state of the cloud forensics industry, the Incident Management and Forensics Working Group conducted an assessment of current issues and published its findings in the Working Group-s first white paper, entitled: “Mapping the Forensic Standard ISO/IEC 27037 to Cloud Computing.”

This inaugural whitepaper will help researchers, data governance experts, and forensic practitioners define standardized processes for conducting forensic investigations, electronic discovery (eDiscovery), and other critical aspects of security that are inherent in a multi-tenant, highly virtualized environment. The comprehensive white paper covers topics such as Forensic Requirements for CSPs, a detailed analysis of — an international standard that seeks to create a common baseline for the practice of digital forensics — and explores how this standard should be mapped to the cloud.

“The objective of this new CSA Working Group is define best practices that consider the legal, technical, and procedural elements of responding to security incidents in the cloud in a forensically sound way,” said Dominik Birk, co-chair of the CSA Incident Management and Forensics Working Group. “This initial white paper represents a significant effort on behalf of numerous individuals and marks an important first step in conducting proper forensic investigations in Cloud Environments following a security incident.”

The Incident Management and Forensic Working Group is co-chaired by Dominik Birk of Zurich Insurance Company Ltd. and Michael Panico of Stroz Frieberg LLC. The Working Group intends to release another research paper entitled “Developing a Capability Maturity Model (CMM) for Incident Management and Forensics in Cloud Environments” in Q4 2013. The CSA invites interested companies and individuals to support the group-s research and initiatives.
