Course Details

STAR Certification gives cloud service providers the ability to prove that their cloud controls have been independently assessed against the STAR certification maturity model. Certified clients will appear on the CSA's STAR Registry. The maturity model checks a service provider's security performance against the CSA's Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) to award an overall grade. Only a certified STAR auditor can assess a service provider against the CCM to recommend STAR Certification.

Led by an experienced tutor, this two day course will help you learn how to conduct an audit for STAR certification and will work through a detailed case study to teach you how to determine a rating for STAR certification. To successfully complete this course, you will need to pass an examination.
