Inspiring Confidence in Cloud Services - CSA STAR certification.

As cloud computing continues to grow it’s becoming essential to the way we do business. Organizations need to embrace the adoption of cloud in a way that minimizes risk, builds resilience and inspires confidence. That’s where best practice frameworks like CSA STAR can help.

CSA STAR is based on a control set known as the cloud control matrix (CCM). It was created and is owned by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a global industry body pioneering research and development in cloud security. Building upon the requirements of an ISO/IEC 27001 information security management system, it addresses issues specific to cloud computing and contains a management capability (maturity model) to help organizations continually drive improvement and enhance their cloud security.
