LONDON -- Leading technology enabler Exponential-e announced today that it has become one of the first European Cloud Service Providers (CSP) to attain CSA STAR Certification (http://www.bsigroup.com/en-GB/CSA-STAR-Certification/).

Although cloud adoption is gathering pace, many organizations remain wary of cloud services due to concerns around information security and privacy, with industry research suggesting that 56%* of companies are still reluctant to migrate to the cloud due to concerns about data security flaws. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is at the forefront of developing best practice in cloud computing. They worked with industry to develop a matrix of security measures and, in partnership with BSI, launched the STAR Certification scheme, comprising an independent third-party assessment of the security capabilities of cloud service providers. The new certification leverages the requirements of the global information security management standard ISO 27001, together with the CSA’s matrix of controls to address the unique security requirements demanded by customers of CSPs. In this way, it helps to address security issues specific to the cloud, and give customers of cloud services a greater understanding of the level of security in place.

The certification, issued by BSI, provides reassurance to customers and partners of Exponential-e’s competency to deliver cloud services.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
