CSA Official Press Release
The Cloud Consumer Advocacy Questionnaire and Information Survey (CCAQIS) - Survey submission has been extended through October 11, 2011
Data governance is a critical need within cloud computing to achieve organizational risk, compliance, and IT service level requirements. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) performed research in this area with version 2.1 of our guidance, specifically with Domain 5: Information Lifecycle Management. CSA proposes a research project to identify the current state of public cloud provider maturity in addressing the issues identified in 2.1 research. Purpose: CCAQIS was designed to capture the current state of data governance and data security capabilities offered by leading cloud service providers in the industry. The results of this survey will be aggregated and used for guidance and research conducted by CSA and its affiliates. Note: CSA highly recommends that the survey respondent(s) be subject matter expert(s) in IT security in cloud computing space affiliated with a cloud service provider. Please allow ~30 minutes to complete this survey as the accuracy of your responses will represent you and your company's capabilities and knowledge in cloud computing.
