What is the CSA?

Welcome to the New York Metro Chapter of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)!

The CSA New York Metro chapter name was derived from our representation of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. In order to honor each member state, we plan host events in all three states. Representing such a large area, we tailored our mission statement to work for a diverse audience: “To promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance in reducing and identifying threats within Cloud Computing.”

It is our hope that the New York Metro Chapter CSA will act as an example for other CSA chapters in the US. In order to achieve this as quickly and thoroughly as possible, we need volunteers! If you’d like to help build this chapter, you can contact us on LinkedIn here, or you can also email info@csanymetro.org.
