Lack of security control transparency is a leading inhibitor to the adoption of cloud services.
As part of your organisations Information Assurance program, we recommend that you request all of your Cloud Service Providers to complete the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) CONSENSUS ASSESSMENTS INITIATIVE QUESTIONNAIRE (CAIQ).
This will enable you to have greater confidence that your information is being appropriately protected, and that processes are in place for appropriate action to be taken where any areas of concern emerge.
You can assess your suppliers maturity of policies, systems and controls that are in place related to services you provide.
The question set was developed by CSA in partnership with industry groups to provide an agreed question set that can be used across the supply chain and is focused on providing industry-accepted ways to document what security controls exist in IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings, providing greater security control transparency.
The CAIQ is based upon the CSA Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) and provides a set of Yes/No questions to ascertain a CSP’s compliance with the Cloud Controls Matrix.
Participation will allow your suppliers to self-assess how securely they handle information on you and on behalf of your users, subscribers & clients.
Completion of the questionnaire is of mutual benefit to you and your suppliers.
Once your suppliers have completed the CAIQ self-assessment and submitted to CSA, their submission will be available on the CSA STAR Registry where their responses will be publicly available.
If they have any issues completing the CAIQ self-assessment, they can contact CSA at email@example.com
The CSA’s free CyberSecurity self-assessment process is a win-win!
It helps both you and your Cloud Suppliers reduce the risk of data breaches & other CyberSecurity incidents as well as helping you both differentiate & promote to your industry, clients and the general public your dedication to safeguarding their personal data.
Benefits upon Completion of the Self-Assessment
