ABOUT THE CSA CLOUD CONTROLS MATRIX The CCM provides fundamental security principles to guide cloud vendors and assist prospective cloud customers in assessing the overall security risk of a cloud provider. It strengthens existing information security control environments by delineating control guidance by service provider and consumer, and by differentiating according to cloud model type and environment. The Cloud Controls Matrix provides a controls framework in 16 domains that integrate and reflect industry-accepted security standards, regulations, and controls frameworks to reduce audit complexity. The CCM seeks to normalize security expectations, cloud taxonomy and terminology, and security measures implemented in the cloud. The CSA Cloud Controls Matrix Working Group has collaborated with a number of organizations in higher education, standards development, risk management, and various industry regulations to add some of the latest compliance requirements to the CCM mappings. Learn more about the CCM Working Group. Note: The new mappings are highlighted in red on the spreadsheet and do not affect control specification language, naming and numbering of controls, or any prior mappings.* **Additional peer review opportunities including CAIQ v3.0.1 can be found here: https://interact.cloudsecurityalliance.org/
