Inspiring trust among stakeholders begins with assuring cloud security and auditing for adherence to accepted standards. CSA STAR is a unique scheme designed to do just that. Developed as an add-on for organisations already certified to ISO 27001, CSA STAR addresses specific issues related to cloud security by providing a comprehensive, risk-based framework for cloud governance and security controls. CSA STAR certification demonstrates to stakeholders and potential business partners that your information security defences are robust and address issues specific to cloud security.

Our CSA Star services

LRQA is a certified provider of both ISO 27001 and CSA STAR certification, and our auditors are information security specialists, trained and experienced in both standards.

Gap analysis

Gap Analysis 

If you’re taking the first step towards improving cloud security following your certification to ISO 27001, a CSA STAR gap analysis will help you identify any critical or high-risk areas prior to certification.


CSA STAR is a three-stage process that involves self-assessment, third-party audit, and continuous auditing. LRQA is an approved auditor for CSA STAR Level 2 (third-party audit), and you’ll be assigned a qualified assessor matched to your business needs.
