Dropbox & CSA STAR: Furthering our commitment to security and transparency


Published on July 30, 2014

A few months ago, Dropbox joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a non-profit organization that promotes and provides education around cloud security best practices. Working with the CSA is an important part of our commitment to security and transparency, and today we’re happy to announce that the Dropbox for Business security self-assessment is now available on the CSA’s Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR).

STAR is a publicly available registry that details the security controls, assurance requirements, and maturity levels of various cloud computing services. Our Level 1 Self-Assessment documents how our security practices map to the CSA's best practices and industry-accepted standards.

We believe that consumers and businesses have a right to know how their data is stored and protected, so we’re proud to help lead the effort to establish open and transparent cloud security best practices. Moving forward, Dropbox will continue to work with the CSA to support research and education in key cloud security areas. We’ll also be participating in the IAPP Privacy Academy and CSA Congress in September and the CSA EMEA Congress in November. We hope to see you there!
