The Cloud Security Alliance [CSA] is a non-profit organization that promotes the use of best practices for providing security assurance within the cloud computing industry. One of the ways it does this is through the CSA STAR Certification program. CSA Star Certification is a voluntary certification program that recognizes organizations that have demonstrated excellence in cybersecurity. The CSA Star Certification is awarded by the Canadian Cyber Security Association [CCSA].
To achieve CSA Star Certification, organisations must complete a rigorous self-assessment and third-party validation process. This process includes an assessment of an organisation’s cybersecurity program against the CSA’s Cybersecurity Framework.
