CloudAudit

A directory structure from the Cloud Security Alliance that allows service providers to define their cloud computing infrastructure. Originally called "Automated Audit, Assertion, Assessment, and Assurance API" (A6), according to the CloudAudit website, CloudAudit is more a namespace and repository than a programming interface (API). The first five namespaces govern compliance and include PCI DSS, HIPAA, COBIT, ISO 27002 and NIST 800-53. For more information, visit www.cloudsecurityalliance.org. See cloud computing.

The Cloud Security Alliance GRC Stack is an integrated suite of three CSA initiatives: CloudAudit, Cloud Controls Matrix and Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire.
This assurance service targets emerging CloudAudit and other guidelines for private cloud operators and public cloud providers to perform automated regulatory health checks and provide transparency in their infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS) and software (SaaS) environments.
I am pleased to see a leading independent IT GRC provider like Agiliance join CSA and participate in the Controls Matrix and CloudAudit.
