    1. CCM V4 SSRM Implementation Guidelines Development (In Progress)
    The CCM WG has delivered a final version of the guidelines that are set for publication during CSA's cloud trust summit, June 6th.
    A keynote presentation is to take place during the summit with title: CCM V4.0 Implementation Guidelines:  Securing the Cloud with the Shared Security Responsibility Model (Version 2.0).
    Next steps involve setting up a Go-to-Market strategy for promoting the project and raising awareness.

    2. CCM V4 - CSF v2.0 Mapping (Completed)
    • The CCM v4 was mapped to the latest NIST CSF v2.0 and is now delivered. Publication is expected on May 8th, during RSAC.
    • Mapping was conducted by the CCM WG and was reviewed and refined by NIST.
    • Next steps involve submitting the mapping to NIST CSF OLIR and developing a CSFv2 Cloud community profile.

    3. CCM V4 - Zero Trust Architecture Mapping (In Progress - Call for Experts)
    Please join our next CCM WG call to discuss next steps to the CCM-ZTA mapping (target framework is the CISA ZTA Maturity Model).
    A first mapping has already taken place by a CSA partner, and the CCM WG will conduct a final review to finalize the work.
    SMEs will be invited to onboard the activity and review the mapping.

    4. CCMv4 – ENX.VDA.ISA6 frameworks alignment (In Progress - Call for Experts)
    CSA has established a partnership with ENX is to de-risk cloud environments in the automotive sector and ensure that vendors/organizations in the automative industry enrich their cloud security baselines through strategic collaboration in developing and validating cloud security controls.

    The partnership with ENX entails a joint a mapping and gap analysis activity between the CSA's CCM V4.0 and ENX's ISA v6 standards. In this way, an opportunity is provided to organizations in the automotive industry to identify the overlapping security requirements between the two frameworks, and more importantly the missing cloud-specific CCM security requirements (deltas) in ISA, hence more efficiently streamlining cloud security controls integration within their cloud security and compliance programs.

    5. ECUC Mapping & Gap analysis Review (Completed)
    The collaboration between CSA and ECUC aimed towards the development of a CCM Financial Service Addendum to offer Financial Institutions and CSPs a framework to:
    • Enable the financial sector to securely adopt cloud services.
    • Limit the challenge of compliance fatigue for both CSPs and Financial Institutions against various EU regulations, data protection standards.
    A joint mapping activity between ECUC teams and the CCM WG was conducted for the alignment of CCM V4 and ECUC requirements as appear in the ECUC position paper. A CCM V4 Addendum to the ECUC PP2.1 was also released (here).
