Cloud Security Training Courses

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.

Our courses cover many aspects from helping you learn how to check compliance with the CSA’s Cloud Controls Matrix to helping you develop the ability to prepare for or maintain CSA’s Security Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR) certification. 

STAR is CSA’s registry that allows users to access and assess the security practices of cloud providers they currently use or are considering contracting to do business with. 

STAR Certification takes this a step further by giving service providers the ability to prove that their STAR registration has been independently checked and assessed against the new STAR Certification scheme. The maturity model checks a service provider’s security performance against the CSA’s Cloud Controls Matrix to award an overall grade.
