How much will Cloud Security Alliance's STAR program do to increase transparency of cloud security?
TheCount 2 years ago
It is difficult to really evaluate the security practices of different cloud providers. For the most part, you just have to take them at their word. I've heard about a new program called the Security Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR) that is supposed to introduce a standard questionnaire that members complete to provide a standard of comparison so that potential customers searching for a cloud provider can make an informed decision when security is of concern (which is pretty much always). So far of CSA members, only Microsoft, Mimecast and Solutionary have agree to publication of their STAR responses. Will this actually help customers make knowledge based decisions, or is STARs a marketing gimmick?
