Cvent Obtains CSA STAR Certification
Cvent, a provider of events and hospitality technology, announced that the company has obtained its certification under the Cloud Security Alliance Security Trust Assurance and Risk (CSA STAR) Program. This serves as Cvent’s second major compliance achievement of 2019, after receiving its ISO 27001 Certification in April. CSA STAR Certification is obtained through a process of self and independent evaluation against a set of cloud security principles, the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).
As part of its CSA STAR certification, Cvent will also be listed on the CSA’s public registry, enabling customers to transparently assess the company as a security partner. Only those Cloud Service Providers who undergo and pass the CCM evaluations obtain a listing on the registry. As a result, Cvent can now publish information about the company’s security safeguards and practices that’s been validated by a trusted third party.
This type of transparency and transitive trust promotes even more assurance by virtue that anyone – be it a customer, prospect, or stakeholder – can independently and efficiently evaluate Cvent’s security capabilities.
