CCM-Lite and CAIQ-Lite

Release Date: 06/04/2024

Working Group: Cloud Controls Matrix

The Cloud Security Alliance, in collaboration with the CCM Working Group, proudly presents the CCM-Lite and CAIQ-Lite File Bundle. These tools offer a streamlined way to assess cloud security.

CCM-Lite: 

The CCM-Lite is a simplified version of the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) v4. It includes 91 carefully chosen controls, a subset of the original 197. These controls are essential for any organization's cloud security, regardless of size or budget. They serve as the fundamental building blocks for a strong security posture.

CAIQ-Lite: Efficient Vendor Engagement

Accompanying the CCM-Lite is the CAIQ-Lite, which stems from the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ). It presents 124 focused questions across 17 control domains, from the CCM v4. This condensed approach streamlines vendor assessment, making it easier for cybersecurity professionals to engage with cloud vendors and enhance their security efforts.
