The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is the world’s leading organisation dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
The CSA is a nonprofit organisation that harnesses the subject matter expertise of industry practitioners, associations and governments (as well as its corporate and individual members) to offer cloud security-specific solutions. These solutions range from research, certification and education to events and products, specifically related to cloud security.
The CSA’s activities, knowledge and extensive network benefit the entire community impacted by cloud technology. This includes cloud security providers and customers, as well as the assurance industry. The CSA provides a structured forum through which diverse parties can work together to create and maintain a trusted cloud ecosystem.
The CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) is specifically designed to provide fundamental security principles as guidance and assistance. The CCM Matrix guides cloud vendors and assists prospective cloud customers in assessing the overall security risk of a cloud provider.
The CSA CCM provides a controls framework that gives detailed understanding of security concepts and principles that are aligned to the Cloud Security Alliance guidance in 13 domains.
The foundations of the Cloud Security Alliance Controls Matrix rest on its customised relationship to other industry-accepted security standards, regulations and controls frameworks. The CSA CCM serves to augment and provide internal control direction for service organisation control reports.
Other frameworks include:
- ISO 27001/27002
- ISACA COBIT
- PCI DSS
- Jericho Forum
- NERC CIP
