Introducing CAIQ-Lite

We are excited to announce the creation and launch of the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ) Lite. CAIQ-Lite can be accessed by CSA members for free on CSA as well as from our industry partner Whistic.

Based upon months of analyzing feedback, conducting research & testing, and applying proper weighting and selection; CSA & Whistic are collaboratively releasing CAIQ-Lite.

In order to accommodate the shift to cloud procurement models, CSA and Whistic identified the need for a streamlined assessment questionnaire to better arm cybersecurity professionals to efficiently engage their cloud vendors. CAIQ-Lite was developed to match the rapid pace inherent within the cybersecurity environment, placing increased importance on vendor security questionnaire adoption.
