CSA Global Consultancy
The demand for cloud services continues to grow; in fact, Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than $1 trillion in IT spending will shift to the cloud. For many organizations, adopting the cloud begins as an elaborate and sometimes complex series of business and technology decisions. Understanding and weighing all the software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (Paas), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) options that are available can be a monumental task, and it can be difficult to know where to begin.
The Cloud Security Alliance Global Consulting Program (CSA GCP) allows cloud users to work with a network of trusted security professionals and organizations that offer qualified professional services based on CSA best practices. These providers bring with them a broad understanding of the challenges organizations face when moving to the cloud.
The benefits for the qualified consulting partners include:
- Recognition from CSA as an expert in providing services based on CSA best practices and programs
- Increased visibility with potential customers
- Access to CSA’s community and network
- Greater reach through CSA’s marketing campaigns
Cloud Consumer Benefits:
The CSA GCP aims to simplify the research for trusted consulting services through the creation of an openly accessible pool of qualified organizations and professionals vetted by CSA.
Cloud customers and CSPs have easy access to a repository of qualified cloud security experts recognized by CSA in their ability to provide consultancy services based on CSA best practices.
