Advanced Auditing for CSA STAR Certification (RTTP available)

This course is now available online


In conjunction with the CSA, BSI has developed the CSA STAR Certification scheme to measure the robustness and performance of cloud security. It gives cloud service providers the ability to prove that their registration to the Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA’s) Security, Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR) has been independently assessed against the new CSA STAR certification maturity model.

Led by an experienced tutor, this advanced course commences  with the 1 day ‘Auditing Cloud Security for CSA STAR Certification’ programme before concentrating on how a CSA STAR rating is determined using a detailed case study on day 2.


"The course has been included in the list of registered public courses under the Reindustrialization and Technology Training Program."


Each company is subject to a funding ceiling of HK$500,000 in each financial year at the course commencement date.
