AWS CSA Consensus Assessment Initiative Questionnaire version 4 now available
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has published an updated version of the AWS Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Consensus Assessment Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ). The questionnaire has been completed using the current CSA CAIQ standard, v4.0.2 (06.07.2021 update), and is now available for download.
The CSA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to “defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.” For more information, see the Cloud Security Alliance website. A wide range of industry security practitioners, corporations, and associations participate in CSA.
What is CSA CAIQ and how can you use it?
The CSA Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire provides a set of questions that CSA anticipates a cloud consumer or a cloud auditor would ask of a cloud provider. The AWS CSA CAIQ provides the AWS control implementation descriptions for a series of cloud-specific security questions based on the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM). The AWS CSA CAIQ also reflects the AWS customer responsibilities according to the shared responsibility model, which can help customers comply with the CSA CCM.
