• UKCloud achieves CSA STAR Certification

        • UKCloud has announced that it has achieved Level 1 certification against the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR), a comprehensive assertion of the security of a cloud service provider. 

          The CSA STAR programme records compliance levels against a framework of cloud-based security control objectives, which allow cloud service providers to assess and communicate their security posture to potential customers. UKCloud will now be listed as a CSA STAR provider on the programme’s publically accessible Registry, adding further transparency of UKCloud’s security capabilities.

          In addition to industry standards such as ISO27001, UKCloud has also achieved and retained Pan Government Accreditation by the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) at the highest level available to cloud providers, and is approved as a service provider on both the Public Services Network (PSN) and the NHS National Network (N3).

          John Godwin, Director of Compliance and IA and UKCloud said, “UKCloud has always been able to demonstrate the security credentials of our cloud services through formal accreditations, such as NCSC Pan Government Accreditation, compliance with standards such as ISO27001 and ISO27018, and by co-operating with our public sector customers as they undertake their own due diligence activities. As such, we are pleased to adopt and populate the Cloud Security Alliance CAIQ (Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire) framework, so that we can more easily support those customers who may choose to use this as part of their formal assessment programme. UKCloud’s completed response, which is publically available to download via CSA STAR, has already been used as the basis for a successful customer assessment of our cloud services.”

          UKCloud’s assured cloud services are specifically designed to meet the needs of the UK public sector, delivering UK sovereign solutions, with genuine and flexible pay-by-the-hour consumption models.
