Best Practices for Providing Security Assurance
Within Cloud Computing

The need for regulatory compliance probably comes up first for organizations moving to the cloud. Jim Reavis
CEO, Cloud Security Alliance

Jim Reavis co-founded the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) in 2008 to fulfill a mission: to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. The organization — a formal coalition of industry vendors, stakeholders, and thought leaders — drives to create governance models within the broader IT community and tech industry.

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. Reavis recommends a new way of thinking— becoming cloud-native means leaving old approaches behind.
