Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
CloudeAssurance, Inc. — an eFortresses Company, in partnership with the Holistic Information Security Practitioner Institute (HISPI) is proud to announce the launch of the Cloud Assurance Assessor Program (CAAP).
HISPI is the oversight body of the Cloud Assurance Assessor Program (CAAP). The CAAP provides assurance of the qualifications for those purporting to have the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies as Cloud Security Assurance Assessors engaged to independently validate Cloud Service Provider´s scores derived from their self-assessments against the requirements of the CloudeAssurance rating system platform.
The CAAP has been under development since November 2011, with the HISPI CAAP Oversight Board (CAAPOB) made up of leading holistic information security practitioners from across the globe and different industry verticals working tirelessly on the development of this program.
With the global cloud services revenue projected to reach $148.8 billion by 2014 and $241 billion by 2020, Information Security can either become a nightmare or an enabler for cloud adoption, particularly with recent increases in highly publicized cloud security breaches.
“With the increased rate of adoption of public, private, community and hybrid cloud deployment models, the need for holistic information security practitioners with the necessary experience, skills and competencies to perform independent cloud security assurance assessments has never been greater” explained Taiye Lambo, Founder of CloudeAssurance, Inc. “The launch of the Cloud Assurance Assessor Program (CAAP) fills a critical market gap by bringing this offering to market in a timely fashion”.
CloudeAssurance SaaS platform is the industry´s first truly risk-intelligent rating and continuous monitoring system assuring cloud service provider´s cloud security and governance, risk and compliance. Customers can know which cloud providers have the best cloud assurance score and history, a measure of cloud trust they can depend on. This platform enables safe and secure adoption of Cloud Computing! The CAAP provides the validation process for cloud service provider´s scores obtained from CloudeAssurance.
