The CSA is a global not-for-profit organisation with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing. Like the CSA Global organisation there are no subscription fees for individual members. The UK Chapter of Cloud Security Alliance was established in August 2012. The purpose of the chapter is to take the best of the Global Cloud Security Alliance guidance and make it practical for a UK audience, encouraging the growth of local cloud security talent. Of course, we hope you will decide to become an active member of the Chapter and get involved; it is a great way to expand your knowledge of cloud computing security issues and network with like-minded UK based peers.
