CSA and ISSA form cyber security partnership

Organizations team up to benefit the cyber security community

The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and the International Systems Security Association (ISSA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on supporting and growing the cyber security industry. 

CSA and ISSA will support each other’s initiatives and meetings, which includes key areas such as the participation in CSA’s SECtember conference, which takes place September 14-18, 2020 in Seattle, Washington.

The organizations will also participate in the sharing of research findings from the ISSA/ESG annual global survey, sharing and mapping of curated education content using ISSA’s Cyber Security Career Lifecycle.

There will also be special offers for ISSA members to achieve certification in Cloud Security Knowledge and promotion of CSA working groups to ISSA chapters and its membership as well as a stake in CSA’s Certificate of Cloud Auditing Knowledge program.

CSA working groups will be supported through ISSA’s Special Interest Groups where appropriate. CSA is a global organization that defines standards, certifications and best practices for establishing a secure cloud computing environment. CSA provides activities, knowledge and a network that benefits all communities involved in the cloud ecosystem. ISSA is a nonprofit organization that supports career growth and promotes cybersecurity worldwide.

“Our partnership with ISSA heralds an exciting opportunity for both organizations to collaborate and bring our strengths and unique sets of expertise to the table to benefit cloud and cybersecurity professionals across the spectrum,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder and CEO, CSA. “Our mutual vision will translate into increased opportunities for research and professional development for all parties involved.”

Candy Alexander, president director of ISSA International, added that her organization was "thrilled to be embarking on a partnership with CSA that will support cyber security professionals and the cyber security community at-large.” 

“We plan to invest our resources to bring vital research to both memberships and lend our security expertise to CSA’s working groups," she said.
