Based on the topics, attendees will receive valuable insights presented exclusively to this group by some of the top industry experts leading CSA’s research activities.
Research Leadership & Engagement
CSA working groups develop tools and guidance that are specific to cloud-related challenges. Participating in and leading future research initiatives enables your organization to address problems you are trying to solve in a way that follows best practices determined by the subject matter experts.

Tools & Platforms
Threat Intelligence Exchange
CSA solution provider members receive complimentary seats for the cyber threat intelligence exchange. Security operations teams can leverage this platform to quickly and anonymously collaborate with other members on attack mitigation and solutions. It can be used to communicate threats either internally or externally, and companies hesitant about sharing data outside of their organization can still leverage it to communicate threats between departments.
Tools for Due Diligence
As the industry needs evolve, the CSA community creates security and privacy tools for due diligence such as the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM), Consensus Assessment Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ) and STAR registry (CAIQ). Corporate members gain exclusive use permissions, access to APIs, and various licenses to SaaS tools created for the community by the community to streamline the adoption of cloud services.
CSA can assist your organization with news releases and white papers. As a member, you can request quotes from CSA experts, access our press release template, cite CSA research (with attribution), and coordinate press releases for any CSA related announcements. This, combined with branding activities, helps increase awareness of your participation in the industry’s leading cloud security association.
