CSA STAR is a powerful cloud security assurance program. It involves thorough auditing, harmonization of standards, and principles of transparency. The CSA STAR assessment is an evaluation report that shows compliance with the industry’s best practices as published by CSA. The program has many benefits such as the indication of having the industry’s best practices and superior Cloud security.
We help both users and providers of Cloud services assess their CSA STAR security compliance. Any company that uses, provides, audits, or secures Cloud services need to be assured of Cloud security by a third-party source. This is where Venkon comes in with the right CSA STAR security assessment tools and expertise to test and ensure that you are doing your part in keeping the cloud ecosystem secure according to the industry standards.
All Cloud service users and providers are encouraged by CSA to complete the security assessment process which addresses the most important and urgent security questions about Cloud services. After an independent assessment by a third party company such as Venkon, the Cloud service provider is awarded CSA STAR Certification. This important certification shows compliance with the ISO/IEC/ 27001 management system standard requirements. Certification also shows compliance to CSA Cloud Control Matrix which is a measure of the Cloud service’s capability. Having the STAR Certification gives your prospective customers that you have an advanced knowledge and understanding of security controls in your Cloud service.

What is CSA STAR Security Assessment?
What are the STAR levels of assurance?
- The Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) which is a meta-framework of security controls in the Cloud. CCM gives organizations and businesses the structure and clarity for information security in a Cloud computing environment. It is considered in many security circles today as the de-facto standard for Cloud security compliance and assurance.
- The Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ) which is based on CCM but with a Yes/No question targeted to the Cloud consumer. It is used to show compliance with the Cloud Controls matrix.
- The CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR compliance which is a tool created by a collaboration between industry experts and the EU National data protection representatives to satisfy that Cloud providers abide by the GDPR requirements and rules.
