Bluebee Just Received Another Security Stamp of Excellence

We at Bluebee are excited to have achieved CSA STAR Assessment Level 1 which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the platform and data security.

The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) – a non-profit organization launched in 2009 – is the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. CSA’s activities, knowledge, and extensive network with its subject matter expertise benefit the entire community relying on and impacted by the cloud and provide a forum through which diverse parties can work together to create and maintain a trusted cloud ecosystem.

Registration with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR) means compliance with the highest level of industry-based security controls, and therefore demonstrating efficiency in an information security management system. It ensures that the scope, processes, and objectives are fit for purpose.

What does CSA STAR Assessment Level 1 mean?

Bluebee’s customers can be assured that when using the Bluebee genomics platform the highest level of cloud security is in place addressing different security aspects including the user interface, data and data center security, data and access management, governance and risk management, interoperability with other tools, low threat and vulnerability risk, mobile security, and infrastructure security.
