Cloud Security Alliance


ORLANDO, FL — CSA Congress — The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) today announced the availability of the CSA Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) Stack, a suite of enabling tools for GRC in the cloud, now available for free download at www.cloudsecurityalliance.org/grcstack.

Achieving GRC goals requires appropriate assessment criteria, relevant control objectives and timely access to necessary supporting data. Whether implementing private, public or hybrid clouds, the shift to compute-as-a-service presents new challenges across the spectrum of GRC requirements. The CSA GRC Stack provides a toolkit for enterprises, cloud providers, security solution providers, IT auditors and other key stakeholders to instrument and assess both private and public clouds against industry established best practices, standards and critical compliance requirements.

“When cloud computing is treated as a governance initiative, with broad stakeholder engagement and well-planned risk management activities, it can bring tremendous value to an enterprise,” said Emil D’Angelo, CISA, CISM, international president of ISACA, a founding member of the Cloud Security Alliance and a co-developer of the GRC stack.
