The Cloud Security Alliance’s Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing seeks to establish a stable, secure baseline for cloud operations. It acts as a practical, actionable roadmap to individuals looking to safely and securely adopt the cloud paradigm.
Since it’s last revision in 2011, the cloud landscape, tools and technologies have changed and so we want to reflect that in an updated version of the CSA Guidance (which would be version 4). A draft of Domain 1 is now available for review. Domain 1 covers Cloud Computing Concepts and Architecture and it provides the conceptual framework for the rest of CSA’s guidance. The domain describes and defines cloud computing, sets our baseline terminology and details the overall logical and architectural frameworks used in the rest of the document.
Experts are needed that can invest their time in providing feedback. Although we have a dedicated writing team, this is still a community project. All feedback and edits will be managed via GitHub so that all parts of the process are open and public.
