About the Working Group and the Architecture
The Enterprise Architecture helps cloud providers develop industry-recommended, secure and interoperable identity, access and compliance management configurations, and practices. We develop reference models, education, certification criteria and a cloud provider self-certification toolset. This is being developed in a vendor-neutral manner, inclusive of all CSA members and affiliates who wish to participate.
About the Reference Architecture
The Enterprise Architecture is both a methodology and a set of tools that enable security architects, enterprise architects and risk management professionals to leverage a common set of solutions that fulfill their common needs to be able to assess where their internal IT and their cloud providers are in terms of security capabilities and to plan a roadmap to meet the security needs of their business.
