Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure computing environment, has released their take on the European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which take effect May 2018. In addition to releasing the CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR Compliance they also have launched the CSA GDPR Resource Center designed to educate Cloud Security Providers (CSP) about the new regulations.
The “CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR Compliance” offers cloud customers a tool to evaluate the level of personal data protection offered by different CSPs and make informed decisions on how they will secure that data,” said Daniele Catteddu, Chief Technology Officer, CSA. “We are extremely proud of the work that went into this latest iteration.”
As most companies struggle to understand the requirements of GDPR, CSA is taking the holistic approach by adding it to their existing Privacy Level Agreement Working Group. The PLA Working Group is comprised of independent privacy and data protection subject matter experts, privacy officers, and representatives from data protection authorities. This gives CSA the advantage of adding GDPR to what they already know about other compliance standards.
