VCPs technical analysis on the MAS Technology Risk Management guidelines.

Since Singapore MAS released the TRM guideline last month, I believe many people are studying them (including me). Big Four accounting firms are usually most active in publishing explanatory reports and article with a purpose to generate more business leads.

However, a group of Vmware certified professionals are taking the lead this time. They worked together and published a MAS TRM analysis report focusing on DR and visualization. Some of the observations are valid. The document could be found at Vmware website

 A few I like to share

  •  Process and Committee oriented. No Agile and rapid innovation. 
  • All social media sites, cloud-based storage, web-based emails are classified as “unsafe internet services”. No technical fact given to support why they they are all insecure.
  • Trust no employee :Sys Admin must be tracked.
