Your company is scaling up, and we’re growing right alongside you. Our latest additions to Drata include compliance management for CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM), ISO 27017, and ISO 27018. All geared toward cloud security, these frameworks enhance data protection and assure your customers that their information is stored safely and securely.
What is CCM?
The CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) is a cybersecurity control framework for cloud computing. This framework helps organizations assess the risks associated with cloud computing providers, making it the go-to standard when it comes to securing the cloud environment.
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) developed the matrix in conjunction with cloud service providers, industry players, enterprises, and governments. It is a comprehensive and flexible cloud security standard, and it compliments other security and privacy standards very well, allowing for businesses to build on top of what they already have in place.
How CCM Can Unify Your Security
CCM brings alignment and standardization for organizations looking to implement uniform security parameters across the cloud. This is especially important for businesses who have struggled to keep up with the increasing amount of digital transformation and adoption of cloud technologies.
What are ISO 27017 and 27018?
These are additional ISO standards that can be included with an ISO 27001 certification. Adding these to a compliance program demonstrates a company’s dedication to ensuring data privacy and security at every level.
Written for organizations involved with cloud solutions, ISO 27017 provides guidance on how to implement ISO 27001 Annex A controls specifically in the area of cloud security. Not only can businesses better comply with legal and regulatory requirements, but ISO 27017 can also reduce the risk of information security incidents.
ISO 27018 provides guidance on how to implement ISO 27001 Annex A controls for cloud service providers to ensure they are processing personal data securely. Implementing ISO 27018 improves PII protection and builds trust between companies and their customers, assuring them of the continuous protection of their data.
How Drata Automates It All
