Given the pandemic and tremendous growth of cloud adoption over the past few years, cloud providers have seen more mandates for standards and certifications, as well as struggling to maintain their business and declining consumer confidence. Therefore, market competition is also contributing to the rise of third-party certification bodies. With the constant emergence of new innovations, companies need to take control to prevent breaches & poor maturity. As these concerns as well as breaches increase, cloud users as well as government agencies need to be able to validate as well as monitor compliance. Enter accredited certifying bodies.
To ensure consumer trust in the certification agencies themselves, there is a series of checks and audits in place. Third-party certifiers have overarching organizations monitoring the enforcement of proper standards. CSA ensures that the STAR assessments are carried out by only the most highly qualified certifying bodies.
Join us as our panel of experts and certifying bodies get together to discuss clear prevailing views of the confusion pertaining to mainstream certifications and sector specific programs like CSA STAR.
