cloud security alliance


The Cloud Security Alliance is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.”

The CSA’s Security, Trust & Assurance Registry Program (CSA STAR) is designed to help customers assess and select a Cloud Service Provider through a three-step program of self-assessment, third-party audit, and continuous monitoring.

Google Cloud has achieved the third-party assessment-based certification (CSA STAR Level 2: Attestation) for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and G Suite, resulting in a CSA Star SOC2+ report.

Google is also a CSA sponsor and a member of CSA’s International Standardization Council (ISC), and a founding member of the CSA GDPR Center of Excellence.
