Contino Named Trusted Cloud Consultant by Cloud Security Alliance
London, December 7, 2022 — We’re pleased to announce that Contino has earned the Trusted Cloud Consultant (TCC) trustmark from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
CSA is the world’s leading organisation dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. As a qualified TCC, Contino's ideally suited to provide cloud security consulting, including assessment and remediation services, to enterprise organisations looking to improve their cloud security postures.
“We’re extremely proud to have achieved the Trusted Cloud Consultant trustmark, which is testament to all the work we’ve been doing over the past year with the Cloud Security Alliance. As more and more of our customers are launching substantial and materially important workloads in the cloud, ensuring they meet all the regulatory and compliance requirements has been one of the most important challenges to overcome. We’re proud to be able to help our customers with their journey to better cloud security.”
Marcus Maxwell, Security Practice Lead, Contino
While virtually all modern enterprises use the cloud, fewer than half of them utilise vendors or tools to quantify their risk. The TCC Program lets cybersecurity consulting organisations and professionals enhance their cloud relevance, providing them with a broad understanding of CSA’s tools and best practices. These include secure cloud design, cloud architecture, secure cloud implementation, and cloud information security programmes, as well as cloud assessment and compliance, risk management, and cloud security governance.
Our Continis have been hard at work this year passing multiple CCSK and CCAK exams to grow their expertise and help our customers meet their security requirements. Cloud security continues to be an area our customers, prospects and wider audience seek our expertise on, and we regularly provide cloud security thought leadership and insights through our blogs, white papers and ebooks. This year, two of our popular in-depth blogs were on the Cloud Controls Matrix and Zero Trust. We look forward to working with CSA and all the working groups they have to further enrich our offering and help enterprises navigate the cloud security landscape.
“Contino has a stellar reputation for impact and shares CSA’s commitment to supporting enterprises in upholding the highest standards in cloud security. We’re delighted to recognise them as a Trusted Cloud Consultant.”
Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance
