Demonstrate your security posture and provide assurance to your customers or prospects by leveraging the Cloud Security Alliance’s Security, Trust, Assurance, and Risk (CSA STAR) program—with our professionals providing the independent assessment required for achieving Level 2 compliance.

The STAR Level 2 allows organizations to demonstrate compliance to their customers and maintain confidence that the organization cloud security posture has been developed addressing critical risks so organizations can stay focused on their key business objectives.

CSA STAR Assessment Benefits

CSA STAR is a compliance program, which uses the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) to assess your cloud security practices.  

Benefits of CSA STAR certification can include:

  • Marketplace credibility. Position yourself as a proactive organization and trusted cloud vendor as the number of providers required to have a SOC 2 + STAR attestation report or ISO 27001 + STAR certification prior to engaging continues to grow.
  • Assurance to potential customers. Demonstrate you understand how to protect and serve data and your cloud environment.
  • Validate internal practices. Verify the safety of your company’s cloud environment aligns with your current expectations.
