CSA STAR Certification

Keeping IT networks and data secure is critical to business. The need for more cost-effective storage and software solutions together with mobile access has led to a rise in the adoption of cloud computing – and while cloud computing has opened up many new opportunities, it also presents a number of new security risks to company information.

View our free Cyber Security Solutions Webinar for insight into this growing threat to businesses everywhere. Stephen Porter, one of our most experienced Cyber & Information Security tutors will talk around this hot topic, and explain how BSI can help your organization to protect against future threats, without having to leave the office.

 

Through the implementation of CSA STAR Certification, in addition to a compliant ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System, organizations can ensure that they have a full understanding of the risks involved and the business impacts. This allows organizations to put controls in place to protect business critical information.

BSI are now accepting applications and issuing certificates for CSA STAR Certification for clients who have their ISO/IEC 27001 certificate with another certification body who are accredited by an IAF member accreditation body. This will require additional checks during the assessment to check the scope which will result in additional time added to the duration (typically 1 extra day).

What are the benefits of CSA STAR Certification?

CSA STAR Certification brings big benefits to all companies of all sizes. Confidence, reputation and new business can come with CSA STAR Certification as more customers ask for proof of these measures. CSA STAR Certification helps:

  • Provide top management with visibility, so that they can evaluate the effectiveness of their management system in relation to expectations of the cloud security industry and ISO/IEC 27001
  • A tailored audit to be implemented, which will reflect how an organization’s objectives are aimed at optimizing the cloud services
  • An organization to demonstrate progress and performance levels via an independently validated award from an external certified body
  • Organizations to benchmark their performance against their peers

Additionally for customers of cloud service providers, CSA STAR Certification will provide a greater understanding of the level of controls that are in place.




Training courses for Cloud Security

BSI, in association with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has developed training courses to help service providers become better at managing the security of their cloud services. This should not only give customers of service providers confidence in their ability to deliver, it can also enhance reputation and could be an important differentiator between competitors.
