Business Assurance for the 21st Century

Several international information assurance organizations have published a paper on ‘Business Assurance for the 21st Century’ outlining their plans to create a global repository of assessments for assurance of the IT supply chain (including cloud services).

Organizations that have contributed to the white paper are The Shared Assessments Program; Information Security Forum (ISF); Cloud Security Alliance (CSA); Payment Card Industry (PCI); Common Assurance Maturity Model (CAMM); and ISACA.

In the first instance, the global repository, or ‘Third Party Assurance Centre’, will support a select number of assurance frameworks. Support will be enabled in a modular fashion, whereby a user will be able to select the appropriate modules based on business requirements.

The Business Assurance for the 21st Century white paper can be read here (PDF).
