As you may recall from my “Outlook is Cloudy” post I am the Chief Operations Officer for the Common Assurance Maturity Model (CAMM). I have been involved with CAMM for nearly two years and it has been a pleasure to work with some brilliant minds and excellent people on the project. Earlier this week the “Business Assurance in the 21st Century” whitepaper (PDF File) was released.
This whitepaper was developed by a number of key organisations, such as The Shared Assessments Program; the Information Security Forum (ISF); the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA); the Payment Card Industry (PCI); the Common Assurance Maturity Model (CAMM); and ISACA. The whitepaper outlines the plans of the above organisations to create a global repository of assessments for assurance of the IT supply chain (including cloud services). In addition this “initiative and repository should be independent and ‘not for profit’ in order to ensure its focus, provide transparency and secure wider endorsement”.
The full whitepaper can be downloaded from the CAMM website.
Keep an eye out for more exciting announcments from CAMM over the coming weeks.
