The CSA Washington DC chapter name was derived from our representation of Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland. In order to honor each member state, we plan host events in all three areas. Representing the federal space, we tailored our mission statement to work for a security focused audience: To promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance in reducing and identifying threats within Cloud Computing.

It is our hope that the Washington DC Chapter CSA will act as an example for other CSA chapters in the US. In order to achieve this as quickly and thoroughly as possible, we need volunteers! If you’d like to help build this chapter, you can contact us on LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=3186074 or you can also email us.

The Cloud Security Alliance is a non-profit organization formed to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.

The Cloud Security Alliance is comprised of many subject matter experts from a wide variety disciplines, united in our objectives:

  • Promote a common level of understanding between the consumers and providers of cloud computing regarding the necessary security requirements and attestation of assurance.
  • Promote independent research into best practices for cloud computing security.
  • Launch awareness campaigns and educational programs on the appropriate uses of cloud computing and cloud security solutions.
  • Create consensus lists of issues and guidance for cloud security assurance.
