CSA STAR Program – Turning your Scars into STARS

Presented by

John DIMARIA (Assurance Investigatory Fellow & Research Fellow, CSA)

About this talk

Cloud adoption has been growing rapidly over the years due to business benefits such as cost savings, scalability, increased security, ease of deployment. In 2020 the world experienced an even bigger upsurge due to the COVID pandemic. This massive growth in cloud adoption also brings about a unique set of challenges when it comes to data privacy and security. The Security Trust Assurance and Risk (STAR) Program encompasses key principles of transparency, rigorous auditing, and harmonization of standards. Companies that submit to the STAR Registry indicate best practices and validate the security posture of their cloud offerings. They increase the level of assurance by turning their scars into STARs. It’s about reducing complexity, which equals reduced cost, decreased risk and increased security. Join us on this must-attend as CSA provides you with an insight into the global growing mandate for organizational certification and details behind CSA STAR. During this session you will learn how it has evolved into a framework that provides a flexible, incremental, and multi-layered cloud provider system that is being recognized as the international certifiable harmonized GRC solution, starting with development, implementation and the three levels of the Open Certification Framework that constitute up the STAR Program.
