About Cloud Security Alliance and the CSA CAIQ
The CSA works to define best practices for cloud computing security and third-party risk management. The CSA based the CAIQ on the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM), which is mapped to industry-accepted security regulations, guidelines, standards, and control frameworks. With third-party risk management becoming more critical as organizations increasingly use cloud computing services, organizations can use the CAIQ to determine the adequacy of their prospective cloud service providers’ security measures. This third-party risk management security assessment helps organizations evaluate the security risks associated with their cloud service providers and track the security controls they should have in place.
OneTrust Vendorpedia enables unlimited use of the CSA CAIQ, as well as other CSA assessments, including the CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR Compliance. Use workflows to automate the CAIQ questionnaire process when assessing third-party risks.
OneTrust Vendorpedia works with the CSA to make pre-complete CAIQs accessible through the Global Risk Exchange. Simply request the assessment, wait for the cloud service provider’s approval to access, and then review the results.
If a cloud service provider does not already have a pre-completed CAIQ assessment, our expert assessment agents can chase the service provider for you, facilitating the end-to-end assessment process. This value-added service is available to all customers at no extra cost.
With OneTrust Vendorpedia, customize CAIQ assessments with the drag-and-drop questionnaire builder. And with automation rules, setup triggers to flag custom risks and controls, as well as reassess cloud service providers when new risks arise, or when contracts expire.
