About the CSA STAR Registry CSA STAR is open to all cloud providers and allows them to submit self-assessment reports that document compliance to CSA published best practices. The searchable registry will allow potential cloud customers to review the security practices of providers, accelerating their due diligence and leading to higher quality procurement experiences. CSA STAR represents a major leap forward in industry transparency, encouraging providers to make security capabilities a market differentiator. CSA STAR will be online in Q4 of 2011. Cloud providers can submit two different types of reports to indicate their compliance with CSA best practices:

In addition to cloud provider self assessments, CSA STAR will also provide listings to solution providers who have integrated CAIQ, CCM and other GRC Stack components into their compliance management tools. This will help customers extend their GRC monitoring and reporting across their enterprise and in concert with multiple cloud provider relationships. Providers interested in submitting should monitor https://www.cloudsecurityalliance.org/star/ for more details and updates. About the Cloud Security Alliance
