CSA STAR Certification Training

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 Control Matrix to helping you develop the ability to prepare for or maintain CSA’s Security Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR) Certification.

Only a certified STAR auditor can assess a service provider against the CCM to recommend STAR Certification. Any certification body wishing to provide CSA STAR Certification audits will need to ensure their assessor attend  the Certified STAR Auditor course.

Cloud Security training courses

The need for more cost-effective storage and software solutions with mobile access has led to a rise in the adoption of cloud computing. While cloud computing has opened up many new opportunities, it also presents a number of new security risks to company information. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and BSI teamed up to develop STAR certification which incorporates ISO/IEC 27001 and cloud specific requirements. The scheme also encourages the adoption of cloud services by business, promoting greater transparency and allowing cloud service providers (CSPs) to provide stakeholders with confidence that controls are in place to secure data.
