  • See you in September!



    Reunite with peers and make new connections in-person at SECtember, a premier event for the cloud and cybersecurity communities from the Cloud Security Alliance. Held in Bellevue, adjacent to CSA’s home city of Seattle, this signature event is focused on educating stakeholders on the key issues and trends in cloud computing today. The COVID-19 pandemic created an instant demand for cloud-based solutions requiring the majority of organizations to accelerate their journey to the cloud. SECtember will deliver the education, tools and knowledge required to make this harder, faster pivot to the cloud. With its proximity to the giants of cloud computing and the headquarters of several leaders within their respective industries, SECtember brings together thought leaders from across the Pacific Northwest to share their insight and provide a global perspective on critical strategic cloud and cybersecurity concerns. 

     

    CSA began defining cloud security in 2009, before most organizations were even in the cloud. Today, cloud computing is the world’s primary mode of computing — it serves as the foundation for cybersecurity at-large and the means by which we secure all forms of computing. As COVID-19 highlighted and accelerated the need for secure, cloud-based solutions, SECtember will serve as the gathering place for all cloud and cybersecurity professionals to share experiences from this unprecedented time and address the rapid cloud adoption and skills gap accelerated by the pandemic.  

    More than ever our industry needs community. Come together in-person again with security professionals to share, learn, and listen to one another. We’re excited to host you in September in Bellevue!

  • GDPR e Cloud Security: Il Codice di Condotta di CSA

    Nell’ambito dell’evento Splunk Security Week Italy, il prossimo 21 Aprile dalle 14:15 alle 15:00 i soci Valerio Vertua e Isabella Oldani presenteranno la sessione “GDPR e Cloud Security: Il Codice di Condotta di CSA“.

    Il GDPR incoraggia l’adozione di codici di condotta al fine di contribuire alla corretta applicazione del GDPR tenendo conto, al contempo, delle specificità e delle esigenze dei diversi settori. Il Codice di Condotta (“CoC”) sviluppato da Cloud Security Alliance si inserisce in questo contesto come importante strumento capace di assistere i Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) nella corretta applicazione del GDPR. Durante il panel, verranno presentati gli elementi essenziali di cui si compone il CoC: il suo ambito di applicazione, le modalità con cui è possibile aderirvi e con cui i CSPspossono garantire e dimostrare il rispetto della normativa sulla protezione dei dati personali fornendo al contempo ai clienti dei CSPs uno strumento utile per la valutazione del livello di compliance offerto dai CSPs. Fornendo uno standard di conformità per i CSPs, l’adozione del CoC può inoltre svolgere un ruolo essenziale nell’armonizzare ed elevare – anche in un contesto di più ampio respiro internazionale – il livello di protezione garantito ai dati personali nell’ambito del cloud computing.

  • Improving Cloud Security through API Governance

    APIs are blood line of Cloud Computing. They connect tools, processes and people to offer various cloud based services. The successes of cloud services depends on people and/or companies implementing an efficient API strategy. In summary, APIs glue various cloud services together, and without governing APIs, cloud services will not work efficiently leading to security and legal compliance issues. The focus of this session is on key API Governance considerations that allow enterprises to achieve their cloud security objectives more effectively. In particular, we’ll overview four key aspects of API Governance: (i) Ownership of APIs, (ii) Onboarding of internal/external APIs, (iii) Assignment of APIs, i.e., controlling access privileges to partners and customers that are in the form of individuals and organizations, (iv) Monitoring of APIs for security, auditing and lifecycle management. Throughout this session, we’ll use real-world examples for improving Cloud Security through effective API Governance programs.

  • Help Us Decide on Potential Continuing Professional Education Course Topics

    CSA is looking for input from the cybersecurity community on what topics you all would like to see in our new Continuing Professional Education (CPE) course series. What subject areas would you be most interested in learning more about? Let us know by taking this 2 question survey here!

    Some potential course topics include:
    • Cloud Key Management
    • DevSecOps
    • Cloud 101 for Board Members
    • IoT (Internet of Things)
    • Cloud Security 101 for non-tech/security professionals
    • Serverless
    • Top Threats
    • Standards for Cloud
    • Containers & Microservices
    • Cloud Contract
    New CPE course series

    Based on the feedback we receive from cybersecurity experts like you, we will continue the development of this new CPE course series. This new series will allow professionals to earn their CPE credits in order to sustain their license, which will consist of 1-hour courses. Each course will be on a different cloud-related topic (based on your feedback), the first of which will be the 1-hour Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) course, a topic closely related to zero trust architecture.

    Each 1-hour course will give a certificate demonstrating 1 hour which can then be eligible for 1 CPE credit after completion, not to mention the furtherance of cloud security knowledge and professional growth that these courses will offer.

    We’d love to hear from you on what cloud-related subjects you believe require more educational material. Is there any subject area that interests you and you’ve been wanting to learn more about but can’t find adequate content on the subject?

    We’d appreciate any suggestions or ideas you might have! To provide us your feedback, you can take this short, 2 question survey: CPE Course Offering Survey

    Please help us pass this survey along to any cybersecurity expert you know.

  • Welcome!

    Dear CCM users,

    Welcome to this new community dedicated to you.

    This is the place to discuss your experiences in implementing CCM controls, ask for explanations on how to adopt for the first time controls or how to improve an existing implementation, how to answer a CAIQ question, how to leverage CCM controls within a specific platform or architecture, etc.

    This CCM User Group is open to cloud consumers, cloud providers, cloud auditors, to expert users who are willing to help new adopters in using CCM, and neophytes willing to learn the best approaches to CCM control implementation.

    All contributions will be personal and shall not constitute a commitment or opinion by the contributor's organization. 

    Example of suitable topics to be discussed in the CCM User Group are:

    • CCM Controls Implementation
    • CCM Controls IaaS / PaaS / SaaS Relevance 
    • CCM Controls Applicability / Shared Responsibility Model
    • CCM Controls as related to specific technologies
    • CCM Controls as related to specific industries 
    • CCM Controls as related to specific laws, regulation and other standards
    • CAIQ Questions 
    • etc


    This group will be moderate by CSA to avoid the inappropriate use of the platform, e.g. commercial product announcements, offensive language, misleading information, etc.

    We reserve the right to edit or remove inappropriate content.

    Please note that this group is NOT about developing the next iteration of the CCM or CAIQ, for that we encourage you to join the CCM WG Community in Circle, though these discussions might provide valuable input to the working group.

  • Participate in the CCM v.4 open peer review

    OPEN PEER REVIEW: 

    The Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) is a cybersecurity control framework for cloud computing aligned to the Security Guidance v.4, that is considered the de-facto standard for cloud security assurance and compliance. The CCM v.4 constitutes a significant upgrade to the previous version (v3.0.1) by introducing changes in structure of the framework with a new domain dedicated to Log and Monitoring (LOG), and modifications in the existing ones (GRC, A&A, UEM, CEK). This update will also deliver a significant increase of control as result of developing additional controls and updating existing ones. Additional features of the CCM v.4 update are: ensured coverage of requirements deriving from new cloud technologies, new controls and security responsibility matrix, improved auditability of the controls, and enhanced interoperability and compatibility with other standards. The objective of this update is to continue to lead the security industry and market as the cloud provider and user-centric control framework of choice for all. Share your knowledge by providing feedback and contributing to the open peer review for CCM v.4. Participants of the peer review are asked to focus on the content and semantics of controls.

    This peer review closes on Nov 4th. Provide your feedback before then!
