NetCentrics’ cyber experts and Program Managers Marvin Marin and Michelle Miranda were recently accepted into the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Cloud Security Services Management Working Group. The group aims to develop a research whitepaper, focusing on building a cloud security services management platform. The whitepaper will serve as a guideline for cloud service providers to secure its cloud platform and provide cloud security services to cloud users, for cloud users to select security qualified cloud service providers and for security vendors to develop their cloud-based security products and services.
The group hopes to develop a platform for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to publish their cloud-based security products and services; a platform for security vendors to share their security products and services; and to provide a platform for interoperability testing. Ultimately, the products and whitepapers developed by the group will establish the policies and best practices for cyber within the cloud.
CSA is the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. CSA harnesses the subject matter expertise of industry practitioners, associations, governments, and its corporate and individual members to offer cloud security-specific research, education, certification, events and products. CSA’s activities, knowledge, and extensive network benefit the entire community impacted by cloud — from providers and customers, to governments, entrepreneurs and the assurance industry — and provide a forum through which diverse parties can work together to create and maintain a trusted cloud ecosystem.
