Outsourcing critical business functions into the cloud can present challenges in creating and sustaining assurance and control over legal and regulatory obligations for data management and protection. The real challenge, however, is the creation of trust in the cloud through transparency and evidence-based confidence that everything that is claimed to be happening is, indeed, happening … and nothing else. The end result of such trust generation is the creation and capture of real payoffs for the consuming enterprise, and greater market utility for the provider enterprise. The CSA GRC stack and practice is designed to generate and make evident those layers of trust and transparency between cloud service providers and their customers. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to leverage the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) GRC stack, giving you a snap shot of emerging cloud standards development efforts, and the CSA Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR). These insights will help you meet your organization’s due diligence requirements associated with trustworthy cloud supply chain adoption.
