CSA STAR Attestation Steps

We Provide the End-to-End Guidance and Audit Services for Your Accreditation.

CSA Readiness Assessment

Our software automatically identifies your controls and any gaps to the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix through a user-friendly one hour questionnaire. The output report includes a customised gap analysis, recommendations, and a complete picture of the audit requirements.

Remediation Support

We guide you as you address the observations, to implement fit-for-purpose solutions that align with the CSA accreditation requirements. We have practice guides, examples and a network of technology and consulting partners to support your remediation phase.

CSA Type 1 Attestation

We iteratively complete the audit, in parallel with your remediation activities and providing regular feedback to keep you on track. We complete the Type 1 attestation audit to support your initial CSA STAR Level Two accreditation.

CSA Type 2 Attestation

We launch the full audit requirements at the start of the audit period and conduct the audit at your teams pace to issue annual CSA attestation reports that demonstrate your compliance over a period of time and maintain your CSA STAR Level Two accreditation.

You're in great company. We work with 140+ fast-growing cloud services companies. From 2 to 14,000 employees.
