Security as a Service (SecaaS): Guidance from Cloud Security Alliance
The list of business and technical decisions that need to be considered by an organization seeking to implement IAM in the cloud seems endless. Just ask anyone who’s done it. From identity management to implementation to architecture -- and that’s just the beginning. So where can organizations get a leg up and educate themselves as to what’s involved? The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and its Security as a Service (SecaaS) Working group recently published its IAM Guidance document, the first in a series of implementation guides for cloud security. Courion is a proud sponsor and contributor to the IAM category.
“There’s a great deal of excitement around providing Security as a Service, but organizations need to make sure that the solutions being provided follow strong security guidelines,” commented Courion COO Dave Fowler. “CSA’s SecaaS Working Group has done an exceptional job of defining the key security categories and incorporating feedback from domain experts across the security spectrum for this expanded version of implementation guidance.”
