CSA Consensus Assessment Initiative

Lack of security control transparency is a leading inhibitor to adoption of cloud services. The Cloud Security Alliance is developing an open Security Consensus Assessments solution with the goal of providing an industry-accepted way to document what security controls exist in IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings. Hosted by Bank of America, the CSA will hold a Security Consensus Assessments working session in Chicago on May 12th, 2010. IEEE will assist in facilitating proceedings and providing findings from previous standards working sessions. You may be a Subject Matter Expert who can help shape the industry in creating this deliverable.

This event is intended to create a work product compatible with and synergistic to other activities internal and external to Cloud Security Alliance. Among the organizations attending include:

  • CloudAudit.org
  • CSA Controls Matrix Working Group
  • CSA Trusted Cloud Initiative
  • Shared Assessments (A service of BITS Financial Services Roundtable)
  • CSA Corporate Members
  • Invited experts

This event will be an all day event and is by invitation only. The venue is Bank of America facilities in Chicago. If you are interested in attending please contact us at [email protected].
